Carp anglers talk about watercraft all the time. But what exactly is
Some would say it’s applying understanding of the environment in which
the carp lives and the fish itself to catch more of them. And how do we improve
our watercraft? By studying how the behaviour of the carp changes as environmental
variables fluctuate daily and seasonally.
We can do this by spending time on the lake or river bank and by reading
Carp Fishing Science is unlike all other carp fishing books. It
provides information which the angler can use in order to anticipate changes in
the carp’s behaviour, especially those related to nutrition and activity,
therefore helping to improve the reader’s watercraft.
Jon Wood, marine biologist and experienced fish farm consultant, has
written a book which looks at carp fishing from a very different point of view
from all other publications; from that of the fish rather than the fisherman,
which is really where it should be from.
In Carp Fishing Science, he
presents a distillation of more than two hundred scientific publications and has
extracted the most valuable proven facts about the fish to allow the reader to
know the animal in greater detail, modify strategies and put more fish on the
This book bridges a gap between that which has until now only been
supposed and that which has been shown through scientific studies. The author
delves into aspects of carp biology, fish physiology and environmental science
in order to clarify some of the myths surrounding carp fishing and answers
questions such as why and how carp feed, which substances have been shown to
cause a positive feeding response to carp, how the fish uses each of its senses
and how the nutritional requirements of the carp change through the year.
If you are a carp angler, a carp producer, a bait maker, a fisheries
student, or just someone who has always wanted to think like a fish, then this
book should be in your collection.
