The Eel Angler is a fantastic book. The best fishing book of recent years. Iím not an eel angler but I was engrossed.

I havenít read a book for a while, now Iím thinking why

I have a few older ones that I like to read, Albert Romps original romp with Carp, John Harry, both on Savay, which I have never fished and never will, and anything on Wraysbury ticks my box, both what I would call proper carp waters, captivated me, reading about them at the time, love it

I have the Wraysbury chronicles boxed up somewhere, started to read it and never finished it, maybe this is the next one to read

One of my favourite books is "Quest for Carp by Jack Hilton" got me really exited about carp fishing. I found this book by accident in the sports section of the library in the 70s and since then bought a 2nd hand copy at a country show a few years ago. A lot of tales fishing at Redmire and Ashlea pool by some of the best carp anglers in the day ! "Brilliant Book" real old school.

Good Morning Stuart,
A good read neednít be the most expensive one thatís for sure, Iíve been re-reading all of Tom Sharpe paperbacks picked up from charity shops of late, and every page I turn brings a smile 😂😂😂 theyíre nothing to do with fishing, but I remembered they made me smile inside and out 😂😂😂

I'm currently reading "How to fish" by Chris Yates, which I've found to be very enjoyable so far. The book revolves around a days perch fishing on the river and is a collection of digressive "jottings" written during that day. Unsurprisingly, given the author, the book is in no way an instruction manual on "how to fish" at all. It only cost me £3.50 second hand as well.
