The Carp Years

The Carp Years

by Tony Miles

This is a brand new book about Tony's love of carp fishing, and how
that love has grown over the last forty years, since his first ever carp capture in 1967. It does not pretend to be an instructional book, although there is plenty of useful information within these pages, but it does certainly hope to be inspirational.

Tony takes us through the early years on various waters, until that magical day in 1984 when he caught his first twenty pounder.
The next target, a thirty pounder, follows in 1996 and then, in 2003, the first forty pounder. As well as that, a trip to France results in an unforgettable encounter with a 58lb monster.

Within these pages, Tony invites you to look back with him over a lifetime's carp fishing, and share the highs and lows, the disappointments and successes, and some of the lighter moments along the way. This is a book you will not want to put down.

Tony's graphic writing will transport you to the banks of windswept gravel pits and atmospheric, secluded estate lakes.

It will make you tingle with anticipation as an alarm screeches out its warning, and make the hairs on your neck bristle as you read the account of the spooky happenings on the banks of Redmire Pool. It will allow you to share in the sheer euphoria as another huge carp is safely engulfed in the landing net.
The Little Egret Press are privileged and delighted that Tony has agreed to share his experiences of a lifetime of carp fishing within these pages. We confidently predict, that it will attain the same cult status as Tony's previous books.

It is a limited edition of just 800 copies of which 25 are fully bound in leather.

The full leather bindings are limited to 2 per customer and are signed by both the author and illustrator.

The book is over 200 pages long, and has many colour and mono photographs.

The full leather bindings are hand bound by Tom O'Reilly, in Oasis goatskin, with gold tooled front boards and spine design, coloured labels, 5 spine bands, gilded fore edges and blind embossed back board, slip cased, with head-bands and marker ribbon. The leather bound copies will be signed and numbered by author and illustrator .
