Carp fishing is the biggest growth area in coarse fishing. Specimen carping takes a specialist approach that sees dedicated anglers going in search of the biggest carp to inhabit lakes, rivers and canals. Once considered a niche following that only appealed to a small hard-core group of fanatics, the popularity of carp fishing has grown - and continues to grow - at a frightening pace. An increasing number of tackle companies, fisheries and tackle shops now base their entire business around carp fishing specialization and the "bug" has spread beyond Britain into the whole of western, central and eastern Europe. This sister manual to "Coarse Fishing manual" will show the growing band of carping disciples how to catch them through over 500 illustrations and accompanying text.
