From the Publisher

From gudgeon to carp is the story of an angler and his fishing life so far, plus all of the adventures along the way. It describes his progression from catching small fish on the canal as a young boy, through many different species of fish, and larger and yet larger quarry. But all these different fish lead on to the ultimate prize - Carp.
At the time of writing, the author has been an angler for over forty years and for the last twenty years he has fished almost exclusively for carp. He has not sought publicity or fished the high profile circuit waters, preferring instead to fish on the quieter less pressured venues. This does not make him any less of angler however, as the capture of many large carp, including a personal best mirror carp of 48 lbs.6 oz. would seem to testify.
Although predominantly about angling, this is a book that can be enjoyed by non-anglers too, as page after page reveals all the ups and downs that he experiences in search of his obsession.
Names have been changed to protect the innocent, but the story is almost totally true, or as near as the authors fading memory would allow.

Worms: The $7.5 Billion Industry You Haven’t Heard Of

The humble marine worms used to catch fish are some of the most valuable items to come out of the sea, new research shows. For the first time, scientists have calculated the size and value of this overlooked industry. They estimate 121,000 tons of worms—worth nearly £6 billion (or about $7.5 billion in U.S. dollars)—are used for bait each year worldwide, most of these dug out of beaches and tidal flats. For comparison, that’s more than three times the annual revenue generated by the U.S. sushi industry. The estimate is especially impressive since it pertains to the use of various types of mar

How Endangered Species May Fare Under Trump

President-elect Donald Trump continues to alarm the environmental community. His nominations of people who doubt the scientific consensus on climate change, such as Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as potential head of the Environmental Protection Agency, have led researchers and conservationists to fear that recent historic progress on combating climate change may be undone. An equally important issue that’s received little attention: Trump and his cabinet may threaten the survival of many endangered species, a pressing issue now as humans are driving a mass extinction of Earth’s flor

Congress Rolls Back Obama-Era Rule On Hunting Bears And Wolves In Alaska

By a largely party-line vote Tuesday, the Senate approved a bill that repeals Obama-era hunting restrictions on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. The House already voted last month to abolish those restrictions — which were instituted by the Fish and Wildlife Service in 2016 to protect predator species from hunters — and so the bill now heads to the desk of President Trump, who is widely expected to sign it. The FWS rule facing repeal explicitly prohibited many kinds of "predator control" on the 16 federally owned refuges in Alaska. That prohibition included a ban on the aerial hunting, liv
