Hi all,
Im up to part 6 of the "Syndicate series by Mark Cunnington", these books are so addictive , once you start reading you struggle to put them down. So now I only take them when out fishing, the only problem is that I stay up till the early hours reading, (but at least im awake if I get a run) Ha Ha !!!!
The first book was so good I read it all in one night, but I slowed down after that as I felt terrible the following day due to lack of sleep :(
I would reccomend everyone to read these books as they are so real, as to the things we all can relate to while out "Carp Fishing", with many adventures that are not too far from what we all get up to, especially while fishing, with the exception of "The Glock" (read the books to find out)!!!
Like I said im up to part 6 of 7, so ive just ordered "In Persuit Of The Largest - Terry Hearn, to fill the void when im finished pt7.
Definitely well worth reading these wonderfully written & humorous books, especially if you've got a bivvy light and lots of coffee !!!

My rating for The Syndicate Series is 10/10

I hadn't heard of these books, but just checked them out and they look interesting, something a bit different.
I'll add them to my list and give them a read at some point

they are a great read mate and il second your 10/10

I fished in Holland last year we treid absinth for the mind meld moment it doesn't work, but does give you a nasty headache in the morning certinaly not recomend as drink by the lake either :lol:

the forgoton chapters by Gaz Fareham is pretty good read as well, bit chunky to take fishing but its lots of short stories from differant anglers some well known some not as well known and there conquest for certain fish. that way you can read a couple of chapters then get some kip cos the following chapter is a whole new story :wink:
some stunning pictures in there as well

Late reply here but oh well!
There are 7 Syndicate books. Read through them all 3 times now and I have to say not only are they the most enjoyable fishing related books ive ever read but the most enjoyable novel/fiction books ive ever read!
Funny, charming, well written books which have had me belly laughing on many occasion, i'll just say when Rambo has the spat with Spunker it is one of the funniest things ive ever read!
You wont learn much about angling so if thats your main reason for reading stay clear. If you want a great, hilarious, addictive read then look no further. a strong 10/10!

I have posted this on the general discussion board, but just to add all The Syndicate books are now available on Kindle and at reduced cost in paperback. Cheers, Mark

By coincidence, I downloaded book one for my Kindle half an hour before reading this thread.

 

Kindle is the only way - especially when fishing
