The Lost Diary
By

Rating
In June 1980, when he was thirty-two and had just caught what was then the largest British carp, Chris Yates wondered if his obsession had been cured. Having landed a fifty-pounder, could he now dream of capturing Redmire's real monster, the King? Far from the monster itself, it was the idea of such a leviathan that hooked Chris Yates in the summer of 1981, playing him along the banks for one final season before releasing him back out into the world. Rediscovered after being lost for more than two decades, this diary - complete with original illustrations - recounts the final reckoning of an angler's long relationship with a beloved and mysterious pool.

About the Author

Chris Yates is an author and photographer but most famously a fisherman. He was first inspired by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond when he was five. Almost thirty years later, he caught a fifty-one and a half-pound carp - the biggest fish ever caught in England - using a split cane rod at Redmire. He went on to write about his experiences in books, in his own magazine, in radio programmes and in the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling. He lives in south Wiltshire.
