I really want to get a copy of this book, I may have read it as a child along with Bernard Venables writings, but I'm not one hundred percent sure?
I've just finished reading 'Richard Walker - Biography Of An Angling Legend' by Barrie Rickards, which has rekindled my desire to re-read 'Still-Water Angling', as it is mentioned many times in Rickards work.
This biography although interesting, I found to be quite hard going at times, and found it a bit like reading a text book in places. However, it gave a very detailed look into the many accomplishments Dick made in his life. And I found out a lot I didn't know about him; for instance: like we were born on the same day - which is kind of cool!
Certainly a must read for any other Walker fans out there.

I have a copy of this book mines a 1975 edition and i got it from a charity shop for a pound
You did well mate, sadly there are few carp books circulating Australian book shelves. Ebay, Amazon and trips to the UK have been where I've sourced all mine, but I've always got my eyes open at car boot sales
There are some angling books over here on the way to canberra 2 weekends a go i found a 1989 mint copy of dick walkers drop me a line and a found a BB FIRST addition and a stephen Harper book the other day in beecworth whilst away. But defenitly they are hard to find, but can be found for a resonable prifce if the book shop owner has not learnt to use the internet yet.
