The Carp Strikes Back, by Rod Hutchinson

Recommended Posts

I honestly cannot remember when I bought this book, what I do know is that it is a great read, and a book I pick up regularly. For bait making ideas and understanding, and also for rigs and his fishing.

 

Rod Hutchinson is in no way a classical writer like Chris Yates, and freely admits that he is an angler trying to write, not a writer who goes fishing. However because he admits his faults you feel you are reading a real persons book.

Great book, read it several times. Really funny the part about Big R & Little H GUESTING :lol::lol::lol:

 

Agreed :lol:

 

I read this book a few months back and would highly recommend it.

 

He does go quite deep into baitmaking in parts which goes over my head but its still interesting to read. There's loads of funny parts like people blanking for days, he turns up and has a couple in 30 minutes then leaves them to it :lol:

Due to the severe lack of waters to fish in here in the veritable 'carp desert' of Western Australia, I'm forced into having to "guest" some very dodgy places indeed. When I do, I can't help but think of some of the escapades that Hutchy got up to in this brilliantly funny book.

 

It is a permanent addition to my bookshelf, and I get a bit of a 'tear-in-eye' feeling of homesickness every time I read it, as it's serves a reminder of some awesome times I spent fishing in the UK during the 1970's and 80's.

 

Thumbs up for this classic carp book Rod :D

I have been looking for a copy of one of Rods books since I swapped it for a steak dinner for 2 and 20 Francs back in 1989 with the owner of Chez Pierre which is the name of a Cafe on the South arm of Lac de san Cassiene.

 

I am pretty sure it was the "Carp strikes back" I read it several times before I swapped it and it was a brilliant read. The reason I want a copy is because I shouldn't have really swapped it because it wasn't mine, and I would like to return the copy to a good mate who is still annoyed with me.

 

Can anyone confirm it was this book, I have tried the book reviews on amazon and ebay but the info on the contents is very sketchy. If it was this book Rod spent a few weeks fishing Cassiene and had some amazing stories and catches.

 

Thanks in advance.

Would you say it's the best Carp fishing book you've read?

I think he is a better writer than Yates, by miles..

It's a toss up between this and Carp Sense by Jim Gibbinson as to which holds top spot for the best carp book ever written

 

They are both that good in my opinion. I read this in one sitting. It's phenomenal.
