Steve Graham is married to Anita and has two children - Lynne and John, and two grandchildren called Logan and Dylan. He is sixty years old and took early retirement in 2005.
Steve has been fishing since the age of eight and has fished for most species of fish found in England, but over the last twenty to twenty-five years has fished almost exclusively for Carp.
He prefers quiet low-stock waters rather than the busier high profile circuit waters and now spends as much time fishing in France as he does in this country. He currently has a personal best Mirror Carp of 48 lbs.6 oz. and a personal best English Common carp of 42 lbs.8 oz.
His pet hates are busy waters where you have to queue up for a swim, bait-boats, and anglers that show no respect for the fish or other anglers. His idea of a perfect fishing venue is a big old lake with a low stock of big carp with no names that will really set a challenge to the very few anglers that fish there.
Steve has written three books so far. The first book `From gudgeon to Carp` describes the story of his fishing life from his early years up until 2008. It includes the capture of his personal best Mirror Carp - a fantastic fish.
Steve's second book `More Carp fishing` carries on his story from where the first book ended up until 2012. This book describes his angling on several difficult low stock English waters as well as some fascinating French venues. In this book he describes the capture of several fantastic carp of over `the magic forty pound mark.
Steve's third book `Carp fishing tips and theories` is totally different from the first two. It is crammed full of tips and theories which may just help the readers to put more carp on the bank.read more
