The popularity of carp fishing has increased dramatically during the last thirty years; many now regard the sport as a separate branch of angling in its own right, alongside coarse fishing, game fishing and sea fishing. This very practical and accessible book examines the characteristics and habits of this cunning species of fish. There are books of all kinds but this volume is particularly aimed at the coarse angler with some experience, who has decided to enter the exciting world of carp fishing for the first time, and at relatively inexperienced carp anglers who wish to improve their catches.
