To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Big Carp magazine, this series of books entitled ‘Big Carp Legends’ will encompass the greatest names in carp fishing history over the past two decades. The content of the books in this series will be a mixture of articles from the archives of Big Carp, life histories of famous anglers and original articles specially commissioned for the series and never before published. One by one these books will build into the greatest collection of modern day carp fishing history ever printed; a collection that every serious carp angler will want to own.
Steve Briggs is more than just a Big Carp legend, he is a carp fishing phenomenon. A master of techniques, this modest angler has become the most successful angler ‘worldwide’ that we have ever known.
Captor of fifty-pluses from five different countries, multiple winner of the prestigious International Carp Angler of the Year and two-time World Champion, Steve’s reputation stretches across the globe.
But it is here in the UK that Steve has quietly gone from water to water catching the best of the best – Darenth, Johnsons, The Railway, Harefield, Summerleaze, Wraysbury and The Mere – the list goes on.
Here in his own words is his incredible life history; a life dedicated to pursuing the world’s largest carp.
