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 "e;bug"e; has spread beyond Britain into the whole of western, central and eastern Europe. This sister manual to "e;Coarse Fishing manual"e; will show the growing band of carping disciples how to catch them through over 500 illustrations and accompanying text.
