From Carbon To Cane

by Stuart Harris

From Carbon to Cane

This collection of diary events piece together one manís journey to a better place. The year detailed was a very important one for Stuart Harris, for it was the realisation that there is so much more to angling than merely capturing fish.
The journey starts with a successful trip to one of Stuart's favourite places, Redmire Pool. On this particular session he arrived with the tools of a modern day carp fisher: carbon rods, the latest technology and an attitude that meant the rods would fish constantly throughout the five days. The final diary event is a return to the same pool almost one year later, but with an entirely different outlook.
This time he was armed with rods of built cane, fifty year old reels and a Kelly Kettle.
In between these two poigniant trips, Stuart tackles the challenge of fishing the Moat, a water local to him that is reputedly the home of monsters. He also fishes the Thames, Waggoners Wells and River Farm, discovering along the way a more traditional approach to this wonderful sport. Stuart shows us how a walk along the waterside can be just as thrilling as the same walk with a rod in your hand, sometimes better.
from Carbon to Cane does not seek to educate, but rather to demonstrate the enjoyment can be achieved by simplifying things. Lose the complication so often involved with angling and open up a world of relaxation and wonderment.


This delightful book shows a further side of Stuart Harris; that of a budding wordsmith and I think you will find his infectious enthusiasm and sheer determination in pitting his wits against the wily carp is put in such a competent and readable way.
There are discourses with other species and venues but the underlying theme remains the Moat and the problems incurred trying to extract its occupants. Overall From Carbon to Cane gives an good insight into how some anglers are successful while others just dream of success.
