Catching carp is easy if you fish 'easy' waters but if you take the next step and tackle the more difficult lakes and rivers the situation is substantially different. In such waters carp can test the capabilities of any angler. Carp are cunning, unpredictable and amongst the toughest freshwater fish in the world to catch.
Simon Crow's love of carp fishing has taken him all over the world and his personal best fish weighing 55lb 8oz was caught in South Africa in January 2000. Simon works full time as an angling journalist and consultant and is News Editor of Carp-Talk fishing magazine. This is Simon's third book for Crowood; he is co-author with Rob Hughes of the best-selling Discover Carp Fishing and Strategic Carp Fishing. Resident - East Yorkshire
