DROP ME A LINE MAURICE INGHAM AND RICHARD WALKER 1953 1st edn. Hardcover 1953 1st edition Signed by Maurice Ingham. B/w photographs, line illustrations by the authors. Light blue cloth, spine titled in yellow. Cloth is very good not faded at all.A little foxing but very good first edition copy in protected chipped dust-wrapper. Primarily concerning carp fishing, with much on the Carp Catchers' Club, but with a great deal also on other aspects of angling such as fly-tying, rod building, fly casting, net construction etc. Nowadays, carp weighing upwards of 20lb or more are caught so often that the modern angler may think that fish of the size Maurice and I were catching in 1950 small fry. Remember that in those days, fewer than a dozen carp over 10lb in weight were caught in an average season in the whole of Britain.
The deliberate pursuit of big fish, now regarded as a commonplace branch of angling, was then almost unheard of. This item is in the category "Books, Comics & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectable".
