Richard Blackburn, Angler
A serious angler
I have been fishing the lakes and rivers of southern England for decades. Like most people, I had a few years where life got in the way, but now I am able to spend more time on the bank.
I also write books on coarse fishing and I have a website called Amateur Angling.
Fishing Rigs is a reference on coarse fishing float rigs, ledger rigs and carp rigs. It contains diagrams and descriptions of dozens of rigs used to catch coarse fish. The purpose of the book is to help with rig selection taking into account weather and water conditions. The rigs have all been carefully chosen to only include the most useful, effective and safe fishing rigs.
Float fishing beyond the basics delves deeply into the art of float fishing by revealing the methods and thoughts of a serious angler. The first two chapters cover float rigs, swim selection and feeding of lakes and rivers. The book rounds off with two more chapters of further thoughts and memorable days, where I offer a more personal view.
First steps in fishing will get you on the right path to the sport of fishing. Giving essential tips and advice on fishing, casting, and how to set up your tackle. It explains what to look for and where to fish once you arrive at the lake. With this essential information you will be able to enjoy fishing and experience the thrill of catching your first fish and hopefully many more.
