'Dark Water'. Good book, and is the usual Stephen Harper quality, that we have come to expect. Very nice to see a Stephen & Oliver (father and son) collaboration :thumbs: Liked the barbel and mahseer chapters with interesting colour photos :camera: . Well worth putting on your Christmas list.

Yes Mr Harper does make exceedingly fine books.

Having said that not got mine yet as I've ordered a leather edition of the Redmire book
and told Stephen I don't mind waiting to get my copies until that is finished.

A launch of the Redmire book is planned … details to be confirmed.

Redmire book received today. Superb book with some very interesting chapters and old black and white photos. I would guess it's set to become a very collectable angling classic :thumbs: .

I haven't purposely fished for Carp for a long time now, but if you have an interest in that sort of thing from the past this is well worth a read.

I got this as a Christmas present about ten years ago, it's like one long rotary letter between club members. :thumbs:

I'm about 75 pages in on the Redmire book and it is thoroughly engrossing. I'm really enjoying it!

Official launch of the books at the Sandown show in November.
Pain in the neck to get to for me as it involves the dreaded M25 but think I'll go.
