Carp fishing is the biggest growth area in European coarse fishing. Specimen carping is a specialist approach that sees dedicated anglers going in search of the biggest carp to inhabit lakes, rivers and canals. Once considered a niche area, the popularity of carp fishing has grown and continues to grow. Presented in full colour throughout, with clear step-by-step photography, this Haynes Manual will give readers all the information they need about rigs, tackle and techniques.
Former IYCF editor Kev Green pooled his impressive angling knowledge and skills to pen a comprehensive manual of invaluable fishing advice
Want to become a better carp angler? Now's your chance with the release of the all-new Haynes Carp Fishing Manual.
The 188-page hardback was researched and written by former Improve Your Coarse Fishing editor and carp expert Kev Green who tragically passed away shortly before its completion.
Kev was a no-nonsense Northerner and his writing reflected his attitude to fishing, and to life: don't complicate things!
The book follows on from the huge success of Kev's original Haynes Coarse Fishing Manual, and follows the same format with acres of easy-to-follow picture sequences and illustrations to help you construct and present the most effective rigs.
The 14 information-packed chapters also deal with a host of topics from carp identification to the best baits and tactics to choose.
Two of Kev's biggest passions – floater fishing and stalking – are explained in detail and there are chapters on setting up, baiting, particles, PVA, specialist tackle, basic and advanced carp rigs, tying hooklinks and getting a run.
