The ‘Old School’ series has become one of our most popular sets of books we have ever published. It appears that, in this fast-moving society we find ourselves, more and more anglers are keen to look back at how things used to be, where it all started, before the commercialism that now controls our angling, before the ‘sponsored angler’, before Facebook, the Internet, or even mobile phones! However, did we survive? It certainly was a very different sort of carp angling to today’s high pace, remote control, Snapchatting, wannabe blogger’s world we find ourselves in.
Our contributors to volume 4 are the unsung heroes of that bygone age who were catching carp years ago before the hair rig when not everyone could catch them quite so easily.
But the big difference between the line-up for this volume is that these anglers’ names may not be known to you. Unlike our previous volumes this one is not all about the famous anglers of this time. Volume 4 is about many of the very successful anglers who did not seek fame by publicising their catches at the time.
Anglers who smashed their venues and the record books but kept quiet until now. So, let’s take a look at what Volume 4 has to offer, and why I consider it the best yet. Here is a brief synopsis of volume 4’s line up and what their chapters are about. A Brief Moment in Time by Kevin Grozier, My Early Carp Life by Anthony Rogers, A Tale of Two Twenties by Dave Miller, Back to the Old Days by William Lovett, Blackroot Pool by Brian Ingram, The Old School Scrapbook, The Seventies by Christopher Davis, Yateley North Lake June 1985 by Nick Peat, Early Carping Memories of Broadwater by Phil Martyn, The Tale of a Twenty Pounder (My first) by Steven Hall, Looking Back – Old School by Steve Fisher, Early Seventies Carping by Gerry Giles, My Introduction to Carp Fishing by Lee Fisher, Billingsgate in Focus by Kris Ford, Old Skool Carping by Paul Tidiman,‘Billy’ the Mirror, Church Pool, Patshull by Tim Thornton and My First Doubles by Stewart Crowther.
A fantastic, ‘one off’ collection of tales from a bygone age from many of the most successful but most secretive anglers of the good old days.
