Signed by the author.

‘Fine Line to Lunacy’ has been written for the carp fisher who has at times suffered from obsession. The chapters feature an enthusiastic spell of carp fishing made by the author between 1998 and 2010, where paths led to the most challenging of this country’s stillwaters. These include Wraysbury Number One, the Yateley Car Park lake, and ‘The Brook’ in Kent, as well as other unknown syndicate venues, busy council-run waters and lakes off the beaten track. These accounts from back then feature some of the most admirable examples of the species present in the venues that the true addict could fish at the time.

Amongst this book’s chapters are numerous sub-chapters describing the incidents a carp fisher can experience. To give a flavour, some are as follows: Dam Chaos – Ragged Spirit – Lively Day – Rogue Male – Pug Talk – Noddy Again – The Otterhound – Trust the Trust? – The Oily Worm – Drowning World – Lead Headband – ‘Lymnaea Stagnalis’ – Brook Head – and Moments of Magic.

With these in mind, should your angling past or present have bordered on being a true angling addict, or someone wishing to find out more, it may be of interest to look through the following pages.
