"The life and times of a big fish angler." Mostly pike fishing including the author's own account of the capture of the infamous Wykeham 40 together with stories of tench, bream and carp fishing and a trip to Thailand for a range of exotic freshwater species. "Terry Knight is one of the UK's most successful specimen hunters. A fisherman for more than 60 years, he has caught some of the biggest fish that swim, including a giant 43lb 13oz pike - among the heaviest of the species ever recorded. By his own admission, pike are his first love, but among the chapters on Llandegfedd, Loch Lomond, Windermere and Blithfield, you'll also find stories about huge carp, tench, bream, catfish and more. Supported by stunning photography, The Scales Don't Lie is a lavish fishing adventure that spans six glorious decades."
