I've never heard of it but if it's got sir Pete's name on it I'd read it!

Yes!

It is a compilation of interviews with Pete and articles by him that have appeared in Rob's Big Carp mag over the years. It appears to be unedited and comes across as a poor piece of writing. Also, there is nothing new about Pete in it.

Having said all that, if you like Pete and want to read again about his adventures over the years (Darenth, Yeoveney, Yateley, Wraysbury, etc) you must buy it.

Hope that makes sense !

Thanks' for your reply, that is pretty much what I have heard, seems a real shame to me that one of the greatest all time Carp anglers was only represented in a mediocre way, where if done well could well be a Carp angling classic! :(

There are actually 3 books to date in 'Big Carp Legends' series.

The Ritchie Mac book is in similar vein to Pete's, but Lee Jackson actually wrote his book from scratch, so it is a much better production.

Personally, I look forward to Jim Gibbinson's book - certainly he is one of the best angling writers of all time :)

Were you Jim's accomplice in 1969 on the Slaughterhouse Bank at Brooklands Lake when he cast across my lines?

Yes, a perfect gent, no seriously. :lol:
