Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of DICK WALKER'S COARSE FISHING, by Richard Walker and published by Patrick Stephens Ltd., Cambridge, in 1983.

The book is in very good condition (clean dark green cloth boards and gilt lettering on spine) with only minor wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is protected in mylar and not price clipped (light rubbing to a couple of corners). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

One of the first to apply scientific thought to angling, 'Dick' Walker wrote many books on the sport. He also wrote for the angling press, most notably for the Angling Times. He held the record for carp in the UK for 30 years with a fish of 44 pounds caught at Redmire pool in Herefordshire.

Considered by many to be one of the best fishermen of the twentieth century, his books are now collector's items. One of his personally handmade Mark IV carp split cane rods is worth some thousands of pounds. He died in 1985.

"Fishing tackle and techniques have become more sophisticated and scientific; angler, either individually or in groups are prepared to devote hundreds of hours to the pursuit of their chosen quarry. Yet despite the radical changes in the sport one constant has remained. That constant is Dick Walker, one of the finest anglers of all time.

For the last thirty years Dick has written a weekly coloumn in Angling Times. His articles have covered every aspect of the sport. And yet not one single word has been committed to print without being tested to the man's own demanding standards by practical fishing experience.

Dick Walker's Coarse Fishing brings together a small piece of that angler's massive store of skill and knowledge. It contains a complete blueprint for the specimen hunter or the ordinary angler who dreams of catching a single big fish; there is a whole section on how to improve basic skills, which will benefit both expert and beginner alike; each individual species of coarse fish is dealt with in detail and there's a fascinating section of the author's own views on the outside forces that threaten the sport. No angler, whether he reads for information or entertainment, can fail to benefit from this book.

Dick Walker is the best-known and most successful coarse fisherman of modern times. He has held the British carp record for more than thirty years and has a string of specimen fish of every species to his credit. During his long angling career he has been responsible for the development of many items of modern day fishing tackle.

Dick Walker's Coarse Fishing contains a wealth of information and entertainment for every angler. It's guaranteed to improve your catches and your enjoyment of your favourite hobby tool."

189 pages. With black & white and colour photographs throughout.
