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

First edition, first print hardback of MY WAY WITH THE POLE, by Tom Pickering. Compiled and edited by Colin Dyson and published by Pisces Angling Publications, Sheffield, in 1989.

The book is in very good condition (clean black cloth boards and gilt lettering on the spine) with minor wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is not price clipped (light creasing to edges and very light creasing lines on the front and back only visible under the light). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is minor tanning towards the page ends.

Tom Pickering is an icon of English match fishing, and a man who has made the tranformation from natural waters to commercial fisheries with consumate ease. The former World Champion showed his skills on these kind of waters by qualifying for the 2010 Fish 'O' Mania final.

He won 1989 World Champion, Park Dean Masters Winner 2004, Embassy Pairs Winner, 3 Times UK Champion. In 2011, Tom Pickering became Feeder Team Manager, where he lead the team in the first ever World Feeder Championships on the River Tevere in Perugia, Italy. He is still the team manager.

"Pole fishing is probably the fastest growing sector within angling — Britain’s most popular outdoor pursuit. It began here less than two decades ago, but did not really take off properly with match and pleasure anglers until 1983.

Around that time we saw the mass production of the first carbon poles, longer and lighter than the earlier glass jobs. Almost overnight poles went from 8 metres in length to 14 metres, but stayed about the same weight!

Suddenly, anyone could use a long pole effectively, and demand for the equipment, and for information about the techniques, has snowballed at an ever-increasing pace. Remarkably, there has not been an up- to-date book on the subject since the most important stage of the pole revolution really got going — until now.

England international match angler Tom Pickering, and well-known angling journalist Colin Dyson, have combined their considerable talents to produce this complete guide, from the basics right through to the most advanced techniques.

They cover the choice of tackle, make sense of the bewildering array of floats and reveal the secrets of Pickering’s successes with the pole for all the popular species, including roach, bream, carp and eels.

They have also produced the first fully comprehensive history of England’s involvement in the World Championship, listing all the results and the names of every England international."

177 pages. With black & white illustrations and photographs throughout.
