Product Description


A Fool and His Eel, by Mark Walsingham,

A Fool and His Eel' by Mark Walsingham charts a life spent in awe of nature, and all it has to offer, but mainly spent in pursuit of fish - all manner of fish. He is probably best known for his 'Ashmead Diaries' series in Carpworld, but this is far from just an extension of that.

With his extensive work as a marine biologist, and his subsequent position as senior conservation manager with the National Trust, he has a wealth of stories to tell, and his love of fly fishing and old cane rods means that it's not just carp that sink his float, there are roach, perch, barbel, tench, salmon, trout... the list is endless.

From wild carp in secluded, Southern pools, to wild trout in remote Scottish lochs. From cold, lonely nights spent fly fishing for elusive sea-trout, to balmy summer days, trying to entice mysterious, monstrous carp into taking a carefully placed floater.

Mark's use of the English language is as luscious and delicious as that of his long time friend, Chris Yates, and it takes very few words before you are magically transported to that lake, that stream, that very enticing pool, and his photography adds the final, definitive sensory delight to make you feel as if you are there, right next to him.

With some exclusive artwork by his good friend, wildlife artist David Miller, this book will be so much more than just another fishing book - it will be a literary and visual delight. We think this is going to be the most evocative, atmospheric and beautifully worded book since 'Casting at the Sun' so make sure you get your copy .
