BRAND NEW

FANNING THE FLAMES Ian Chillcott £30.00 Fanning The Flames is the eagerly awaited follow up to Chilly’s first autobiography, Light My Fire! and is set to become a best-seller! The tome begins way back in 1966 when the initial spark ignited his carp fishing passion, and explains a little more about the man himself. The story of the journey, however, starts at the very moment he pushed his barrow away from the swim at Frimley where he achieved his lifelong obsession of catching a common equal to Walker’s 1952 record. The variety of environments Chilly finds himself in is breathtaking, and the number of big carp from so many different waters certainly makes you believe in the magic of your dreams. Much like Chilly’s incredible 22-year military career, which found him soldiering in various countries in all Continents of the world, his carp fishing has seen him angling on a multitude of different waters. Chilly takes the reader through a vast array of different angling situations, that don’t all necessarily revolve around ‘big’ carp. The biggest carp aren’t always the most vital aspect of his fishing, but as long as they are special to him then they will always appear on his ‘must have’ list.

FALLEN KINGS Dave Levy £30.00

THE CARPERS’ HIGH Ali Hamidi £20.00

Fallen Kings, is the story of debut author Dave Levy’s angling so far. It follows Dave from being a small boy who dreams of catching fish, angling in streams, who grows up to become a well-respected carp angler fishing some of the wellknown big-fish waters in the country.

Is it a biography? Is it a technical book? Is it anecdotal and story-based? Quite simply, it’s all these things rolled into one. With a diverse geographical chapter base, from as far away as Japan, to Paris, Ockendon, and even Turkey, this book brings variety by the spodful.

The final book in the Bivvy Trilogy. It is fitting that the Bivvy books have finished where they began, in Shropshire. Some captures are more significant than others, but if they bring you joy, then they are all meaningful.

Almost 60,000 words in length with line drawings and illustrative pictures this is the book for all carp anglers of today. You want rigs, you’ve got them. Presentations and end tackles that genuinely catch carp, not just look good in print!

It’s a decade now since the release of the first book The ‘Myth’ which is regarded as a highly original piece of angling fiction. Now, along comes not a sequel but a natural progression.

Keith Jenkins’ young granddaughter, Ebonie-Rose, has recently been diagnosed with leukaemia, so Keith has decided to try to raise as much as possible for the Starlight Foundation. All the proceeds from this book will, therefore, go towards this children’s charity.

Martin Lawrence Softback £11.99 Hardback £14.99

Bivvy tramps Kes Waterman and Steve Banks are stoked as they head off into France in search of x-treme carp adventures. Their epic winter journey takes them south to the Grand Lac and a chance encounter with elusive cult carp legend Chris Springson. Where has he been all these years? Why did he quit the UK carp scene and what new edges has he been conjuring? Little do they know what trials and tribulations lay ahead, as they glimpse the promised land of an ultimate rig and monster carp but quickly become entangled in a web of crime, violence and jealousy, which leads them all the way back to England and campaigns for the scaly jewels of Fen Drayton and St Ives.

Softback Only

Martin Lawrence caught his first carp, aged 10, in 1975, and has been infected with a bad case of carp fever ever since. He works at the Natural History Museum in London and lives with his long suffering family in carping paradise, aka St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Bivvy Tramps – The Ultimate Rig was written on the banks of St Ives Fjords and Meadow Lakes when he should have been watching the water, and on the train between Kings Cross and Huntingdon. His search for the ultimate rig has been abandoned.

THE SAVAY CHRONICLES £30.00 For many carp anglers, Savay Lake is as mystical a place as Redmire Pool; a lake that few have fished but where many would dearly love to. With over 600 photos, stretching back to the very first carp stockings in the early fifties, this is a must for carp anglers young and old.

A FOOL AND HIS EEL Mark Walsingham £30.00 ‘A Fool and His Eel’ by Mark Walsingham charts a life spent in awe of nature, and all it has to offer, but mainly spent in pursuit of fish – all manner of fish. Definitive sensory delight to make you feel as if you are there, right next to him.

THE WRAYSBURY CHRONICLES

£22.50

Softback Only

This is a history book now, and although that mystery may have dispersed a little, this book, like Redmire Pool, is testament to the fact that it did exist and maybe, just maybe, is waiting patiently to return. If you’re not sure about that then have a look inside and have your mind changed.

MONSTER CARP Tim Paisley, Steve Briggs & Thomas Duncan-Dunlop Was £30.00 | Now £10.00 With contributions from Alijn Danau • Daniel Calleja • Sandro di Cesare. This astonigshly detailed and heavily researched book contains details of almost 700x 70lb+ carp captures, including approaching 200x 80lb+ carp.

RIVER’S END Rob Maylin £29.95

ROMANCING THE CARP Dave Jones £25.00

No less than eight river records are featured in this publication from the greatest rivers in the UK, from the mighty Thames records of both common and mirror strains, two massive River Lea records, the Delph, Gipping and Ouse records, and even a couple of monsters from an undisclosed river, both of which are records.

The arrogant, interfering hands of undercover fish stocking finally put paid to all but one or two of the surviving legendary carp at Little Frensham Pond. The tragedy and the loss to the small band of anglers who had clung desperately to the dreams attached to encountering these creatures are impossible to translate.

RIVER CARPING Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95

MORE RIVER CARPING Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95

River carping has never been more popular. The scramble to get the going swims on traditional carp venues has forced many anglers to turn their backs on their local lakes and gravel pits and seek the quieter side of carp fishing on rivers and canals, where at least there are swims available on a Friday afternoon.

This has been a very long awaited read and has something for everyone. The book has a technical aspect combined with the humour, antics and stories that we have come to expect from Frank. He allows us glimpses into his private life and shares some of his incredible thought processes which have made him the person he is today.

FRENCH CARPING Clive Williams £15.00 French Carping has a directory of commercial carp waters in France, compiled by Clive Williams, and based on his Sussex Carping book.

MY RED LETTER DAYS Matt Hayes £20.00

THE LOST DIARY Chris Yates £12.99

Matt Hayes Red Letter Days is a new book of short stories and is a celebration of many years on the bank. From pursuing chub, pike and barbel to landing exotic species from around the world, this is a collection of some of Matt’s most memorable fishing trips which will inspire you to take on a new challenge.

In June 1980, when he was thirty-two and had just caught what was then the largest British carp ever, Chris Yates wondered if his obsession had been cured. But then he had a mad idea that, having landed a fifty-pounder, he could now dream of capturing Redmire’s real monster, the King.

CARP FISHING SCIENCE Jon Wood £19.99

ADVANCED TERMINAL RIGS Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95 Advanced Terminal Rigs is the definitive encyclopaedia of today’s hi-tech carp rigs, so don’t expect any floating crust or luncheon meat rigs in these pages. Everything from presentation, hook choice, lead choice and hooklink choice are explained in detail with easy step-by-step photo sequences.

2016-17_Catalogue(v8).indd 7

Carp anglers talk about watercraft all the time. But what exactly is that? Some would say it’s applying understanding of the environment in which the carp lives and the fish itself to catch more of them. And how do we improve our watercraft? By studying how the behaviour of the carp changes as environmental variables fluctuate daily and seasonally.

CLASSIC READ

TIGER BAY Rob Maylin & Friends £22.95 The author of this book is already established as one of the leading carp anglers in this country.

Rob has fished most of the hard southern waters during this time and accounted for no less than thirty English carp over thirty pounds, the biggest being the legendary Bazil from the Yately North Lake at 45lbs 6oz.

Nigel Sharp is regarded by those in the know, as one of the finest carp anglers of all time. This opinion has been formed for many reasons, not least because Nigel has caught every carp he’s set out to capture, and because he’s done so through his unique combination of talent, knowledge, and sheer hard graft.

Bait! The most important item in carp fishing, it’s a fact. No matter what rig, what rod, reel or kitchen sink you have in your armoury, no matter how much you paid for the privilege of fishing one of the best waters around, if the fish won’t eat your bait you ain’t gonna catch them!

This is not an instructional book, although the reader will find some excellent angling tips within these pages. Instead, he tries throughout the book, to inspire the angler to try their hand at different species and travel to different venues.

BEAUTIES AND THE BEASTS John claridge £22.00

This is Trevor’s first carp book and will captivate the reader from the outset with its down to earth style and humorous theme. It will appeal to the ‘Average ‘ carp angler because Trevor is, like most of us a hard working family man, with a passion for big carp.

The story of Beauties and the Beasts takes us through some classic carp encounters. Starting back in 1990 on the ‘hushed’ Frampton Court, John learned many things along the way whilst being driven to catch big carp from some of the most prestigious venues in the country.

RITCHIE ON CARP Ritchie McDonald £25.00

In this long-awaited book, the irrepressible Jerry Hammond shares his memories of some outstanding sessions on both prestigious and lesser known waters. He tells of his successes and failures, the good mates he’s met along the way, and even includes a chapter about his years as a film actor.

For anyone involved in carp fishing in the 1980s and ‘90s, the name Ritchie McDonald needs no introduction. He was one of the biggest names in the sport, with a personality to match, and an inspiration to a generation of young carp anglers.

OFF THE BEATEN TRACK Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95

FURTHER OFF THE BEATEN TRACK Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95

Some would say that all the mystery in carp fishing has long gone. These days the carp all have names, and we know all there is to know about them: weight, age even their shoe size. But what if I were to tell you that there is another side of fishing where ‘mystery’ is still a key factor?

The term feral is defined as ‘especially an animal or fish in a wild state, un-captive, undomesticated, untamed, unused to humans, resembling or characteristic of a wild animal’. Do you see where we are going with this now? Further Off The Beaten Track epitomises the feral carp.

THE CARP YEARS

WATERCRAFT Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95

Tony Miles £24.95

There is a lot more to watercraft than just finding the fish, a mistake many anglers make. Finding the fish on a sunny day around a well-stocked lake in the summer can be relatively easy once armed with a decent pair of sunglasses and sometimes a decent vantage point, whereas a large low-stocked pit in the depths of winter can be a totally different proposition.

Tony takes us through the early years on various waters, until that magical day in 1984 when he caught his first twenty pounder. The next target, a thirty pounder, follows in 1996 and then, in 2003, the first forty pounder. As well as that, a trip to France results in an unforgettable encounter with a 58lb monster.

From the capture of a record-shaking Wraysbury carp, to the loss of a river monster WHICH still leaves him shaking. Highs and lows which don’t just involve his fishing, but all aspects of his life.

This may be Pete’s final book, but it is far from the final chapter in his angling career, and there is no doubt that he is far from hanging up his rods. Having been bitten by the ‘river bug’, Pete now tackles a wild Sussex river. This, however, is just the start of another adventure.

BIG PIKE Bob Church £10.00 Second only to carp fishing by its popularity, piking continues to be of increasing interest not only in the UK and Ireland but also elsewhere in Europe and North America.

URBAN CARPING C Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95 If someone had told me thirty years ago that one day the backdrop to some people’s carp captures would feature office blocks, factories and high street retailers I would never have believed them. Surely carp angling is an escape to the countryside…

GREAT MODERN PIKE ANGLERS

Barrie Rickards & Malcolm Bannister £19.95 The Great Modern Pike Anglers examines all of the discoveries in pike fishing techniques that have taken place since 1950. It discusses how, and why, new approaches developed and who was responsible for the breakthroughs. Includes brief biographies of the piking giants, Fred Buller and Bill Giles.

CANAL CARPING Rob Maylin & Friends £29.95 Canal carping has become one of the fastest growing areas of carp fishing in recent years in the UK, not that there’s anything new in carp fishing canals, as this book will soon prove. Some carp anglers have been fishing canals almost exclusively for decades, and of course canal carping in countries like Holland and Belgium is commonplace.

Fan


Now Available The latest book by Ian ‘Chilly’ Chillcott

Fanning The Flames Fanning The Flames is the eagerly awaited follow up to Chilly’s first autobiography, Light My Fire! The tome begins way back in 1966 when the initial spark ignited his carp fishing passion, and explains a little more about the man himself. The story of the journey, however, starts at the very moment he pushed his barrow away from the swim at Frimley where he achieved his lifelong obsession of catching a common equal to Walker’s 1952 record. The variety of environments Chilly finds himself in is breathtaking, and the number of big carp from so many different waters certainly makes you believe in the magic of your dreams.

T S E B R E L SEL

By Dave Levy Fallen Kings is the story of Dave Levy’s angling so far, and takes its title from the mirror and common carp under the king carp strain. It follows Dave from being a small boy who dreams of catching fish, angling in streams, to growing up to become a wellrespected carp angler fishing some of the well-known big-fish waters in the country. What is most extraordinary about Dave’s story is the fact that he’s achieved his ambition of catching big carp while balancing everyday life that most of us face.
