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 anglers talk about watercraft all the time. But what exactly is that?

By studying how the behaviour of the carp changes as environmental variables fluctuate daily and seasonally.
