Reprint hardback of THE COMPLETE BOOK OF THE ROACH by Dr. Mark Everard and published by The Medlar Press Ltd., Shropshire in 2011. First published in 2006. This is a reprint with minor amendments.

The book is in very good condition (Clean green cloth boards with gilt lettering on the spine), with only minor shelf wear to the illustrated dust jacket which is price not clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Doctor Mark Everard’s achievements are as wonderfully comprehensive and diverse as the topics covered in his latest books - Fantastic Fishes, The Little Book of Little Fishes, Barbel River and The Complete Book of the Roach. He is well-known not only for his work as a writer and his contributions to the world of aquatic science, but also as an environmentalist.

His fascination with the natural world, particularly for those things that live in water, has continued from his childhood days through to a PhD in aquatic biology and his ongoing research, advisory and national environmental policy roles. He was previously a Director of the Anglers’ Conservation Association and now supports the Angling Trust.

He has represented organisations on numerous government advisory committees and has advised government bodies in other parts of the world working towards aquatic conservation.

Mark’s all-round specimen angling successes, often featured in the angling press to which he is a regular contributor, owe a great deal to the application of his scientific understanding. Mark likes catching roach, particularly big ones, including hundreds of specimens over two pounds from farm ponds, estate lakes, gravel pits, small streams, canals, and large rivers since he was a schoolboy. Amongst them are three-pound fish from two different rivers. His 3lb 2oz roach is one of seven species for which he has held the Bristol Avon river record.

Mark's personal best roach is a stunning 3lb 11oz wild specimen taken from a lake in Northern Ireland. His best river fish, taken from the Hampshire Avon, weighed in at 3lb 6oz 4dr. Mark has also pursued the species overseas. Mark has appeared on the TV programme Springwatch.

The Complete Book of the Roach is the most comprehensive book on the roach ever attempted. Some might say (not without justification) that it is a work of obsession. But roach can become an obsession. This book covers virtually every aspect of the roach. It starts with a natural history of the fish, moves on to successful angling techniques and fishery management, before considering technology, research, art, gastronomy and literature.

This book is written to inform, to pique the curiosity, to serve as a ready reference, and to broaden appreciation of this fascinating fish. Fully illustrated throughout with monochrome line drawings and photographs.

' . . . the largest and most detailed study of a freshwater species ever published . . . Everard is also the country's top roach specialist . . . so the book is stuffed with practical information ' - Brian Clarke, The Times

'Even the most experienced roach angler cannot fail to learn more about the habits of roach.' - Fishingmagic.com

435 pages. Illustrated with black & white photographs and line drawings within the text.
