1953 1st edition. 8vo (145 x 222mm). Pp295. B/w photographs, line illustrations by the authors. Light blue boards, spine titled in yellow. Some foxing but good-plus in dust-wrapper chipped with loss. There is an area of loss (around 2cm) to the base of the d/w spine along with a smaller area (around 5mm) at the head of the spine. A previous owner has placed a piece of yellow paper, matching the spine colour, beneath these areas to try and minimize the visual impact. Still a nice copy. An exchange of letters between Richard Walker and Maurice Ingham. Primarily concerning carp fishing, with much on the Carp Catchers' Club, but with a great deal also on other aspects of angling such as fly-tying, rod building, fly casting, net construction etc. "Nowadays, carp weighing upwards of 20lb or more are caught so often that the modern angler may think that fish of the size Maurice and I were catching in 1950 small fry. Remember that in those days, fewer than a dozen carp over 10lb in weight were caught in an average season in the whole of Britain. The deliberate pursuit of big fish, now regarded as a commonplace branch of angling, was then almost unheard of; Maurice and I were groping our way out of the dark." (Richard Walker). An enduring classic and one of the key books in any coarse angling library. . Buchnummer des Verkäufers 27875
