Just finished reading it. Bought as he is a local angler and fishes the Avon and Stour so was hoping for some useful insights. The author certainly has his own approach to fishing these rivers and it is well written and an enjoyable read, with plenty of photos of big barbel and some impressive roach. Slightly disappointed that there wasn’t a bit more detail on his tactics but still a good read and I would certainly recommend the book to any anglers who enjoy fishing the HA and the Dorset Stour.
Got the Kindle edition, but it won’t download on to my Kindle. Works on the kindle app on my phone and iPad though. Strange... Didn’t realise it was Avon and Stour based, so looking forward to reading.
Predominantly HA with some Stour as well as a bit of Thames. The author grew up in London but moved to the Christchurch area and has focussed his attention on the Avon ever since. He has some strong views on tackle and his angling approach - he prefers trotting for roach and has very clear ideas on what kind of swim he prefers.
Hope you enjoy the book, it’s well written and easy to read.
