Canal Zander by John Glover

Post by steve28fishing »

Been informed by the Little Egret Press that this book is soon to be published. Pretty specialised area to devote a whole book to but having never tried for zander on the canal system might be more to it than I think.

Definitely a niche subject underrepresented.

I look forward to getting to read a copy of this. As Stew says, there isn't a lot written about Zander in terms of books. :thumbs:

Judging a book by it's cover, so to speak... he's holding a very average size fish over some concrete, I'll leave it there :roll:

If you want to find some good information or reading on Zander, just substitute that for Walleye. Pretty much the same species... tons of material out there. I have quite a few books from the States and they've been surprisingly relevant to the fishing we have over here, especially given how widespread the species has now become... e.g. drains, rivers, lakes, pits, canals and reservoirs.

I attributed to the Dr Steve Rowgowski book and thought the same...

Aye, good point that. I reckon there's very little if anything the Americans haven't covered in regards to Walleye, which as you say are basically Zander.

UK anglers adapting US techniques & lures to our own Bass, Pike and Perch fishing has worked extremely well (not always) so the same should go for Zander.

This chap fishes over by me in Warwickshire.. I’ve met him . I suppose any one with an opinion can write a book and have their 5 mins . Doesn’t make it gospel but it’s different and interesting.

True :thumbs: Joking aside, even if he's not caught a string of big zander or even just a good number of doubles, for those who fish canals it could be an interesting insight into zander fishing those waters. It's about the only water type I have not fished, ergo, not caught zeds from.

What sort of waters do walleye thrive in? Judging just on what the online tackle shops over there sell, a lot of walleye fishing seems to be trolling, often with Dipsy Divers, so I guess the waters must usually be big enough to troll and deep enough to need Dipsy Divers.
