The Complete Book of the Roach - Dr Mark Everard. 2006 First Edition, First Print published by The Medlar Press. The most comprehensive book on the roach ever attempted. Some might say (not without justification) that it is a work of obsession. But roach can become an obsession.
This book covers virtually every aspect of the roach. It starts with a natural history of the fish, moves on to successful angling techniques and fishery management, before considering technology, research, art, gastronomy and literature. It is written to inform, to pique the curiosity, to serve as a ready reference, and to broaden appreciation of this fascinating fish.
A superb and wide-ranging monograph containing everything you might want to know about the roach. This sought after book (from the first printing of 600 copies of which 90 are bound in leather) is in fine condition and has the added bonus of being signed by the author to the title page.
