Bivvy Tramps by Martin Lawrence

Recommended Posts

I've just finished reading this after winning a copy in the competition Martin ran here on carp.com, and I'd just like to say how much I enjoyed it.

It's a tale of big carp, both old English ones and others of more dubious origins. There are plenty of references that carp anglers would recognise, from tackle, rigs and bait to the banter and camaraderie associated with fishing, but it's also a story of friendship and challenges.

I read it in just a few days, which is always a sign of a good book, and I can recommend it to anyone who fancies a good carp fishing related read.

 

Cheers

Bart

Gotta agree with Bart, I've just read it and have to say what a cracking read it was too. Really funny in places, almost in tears in others, any carp angler could relate to the ethos and messages in this book.

 

Even non anglers would enjoy it too.

 

Great book martin when's vol 2 coming out? Can't wait

Thanks chaps, glad you enjoyed it, and please don't be shy in spreading the word, specially if you want the sequel (I am hoping Tim P will like it and publish it early next year).

 

No current plans to release as an ebook, but hopefully we will somewhere downstream.

 

Cheers

I would just like to add my thoughts on this book , I read it a while ago but it was a great read , if you haven't read it you won't regret it ? It's up there for me alongside some of the great carp books being based local to me I could almost picture the lakes he was writing about and some of it very close to the truth an epic read and Martin is an excellent guy , he has been most helpful since I joined st Ives and regularly see him creeping around the banks, his autobiography bivvy tramping is a great read too 

There is a Kindle edition now btw so go forth and buy it
