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 more of an angler than I have ever been. In the last ten years I have been putting time back into fishing. I am on the committee of my local club and I write about how to fish in my books and online.
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.
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.
