PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

First edition first print hardback of A FLICK OF THE TALE by Dave Lane and published by MPress in 2008. Signed by Lane on the front endpaper. Includes a numbered ticket (0097).

The book is in fine condition (brown boards with black lettering to front and spine) with no significant wear. The dust jacket, which is not price clipped, is in fine condition and also has no wear to speak of. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

If you've read Dave's first, highly acclaimed book, An Obsession with Carp, then you'll have a bit of an idea what to expect from A Flick of the Tale. If you haven't read it, then this will really open your eyes to the world of 'specimen' carp angling. Wildlife, the best bite, the longest fight, the biggest fish - all gloriously illustrated.

The obsession still burns, although Dave has a modicum of control over it now, but with rewards amongst the most sought after in the carp world. This is a book that will amuse, amaze and astound you - and hopefully inspire you, with chapters on Conningbrook, St.Ives, the Secret Mere and many more... Take care as you go, and beware the brambles!

Chapters include:- Blood sweat and Guiness; A voyage of discovery; A new arrival; Conningbrook; The Secret Garden; Sonning, the great unknown; Close encounters; The Forbidden Lands; End of an era; Paradise found; Dinton Pastures; Paradise revisited; Back to nature; Bruno and friends; A frozen adventure; One step behind; The fat lady sings; Black Jack Shellack; Going home.
