This book is neither an autobiography, like his Carp Along the Way volumes, nor is it a story book, like The Carp Strikes Back. It is a technical book, but one with a big difference.
It includes, apart from Rodís own chapters on all technical aspects, contributions by anglers who have inspired Rod throughout his life, some of them sadly no longer with us.
There are original and nicely written chapters from those golden oldies, the late Maurice Ingham and Fred J Taylor, with Fred discussing his early particle experiments. Another chapter reproduces Fred Wiltonís early HNV bait theories that were first published in the BCSG in-house journal. There is a historical piece on winter fishing by the erudite Jim Gibbinson. Another chapter reproduces the late Lennie Middletonís pioneering article on the invention of the hair rig. Very relevant for some modern anglers is the late Alan Smith's piece on overcoming the problems of fishing very weedy waters. Another original chapter by Albert Romp deals with carp location. Lee Jackson writes about modern artificial baits (plastics). There are other contributors. As they say, much, much more - a bit of everything.
A big, big read, well written and thoroughly recommended.
