by Dominic Garnett
A Practical Guide
With hundreds of miles of underfished water, canals represent a vast, untapped fishing resource. From shallow, secluded rural waters to giant urban ship channels, they offer a staggering diversity of angling potential which is open and affordable to all.
Britain’s canals have never been in better shape, with a huge range of species to target. From classic roach fishing to specimen carp, pike and increasingly common surprises like chub and zander, this book covers everything from traditional to ultra-modern techniques.
This is more than just a ‘how to’ volume. With details of venues and notable fish records from every part of the UK, this book also represents an essential guide to Britain’s canals. Whether you’re planning a short break or looking for a fresh challenge on your local ‘Cut’, Dominic Garnett’s book is packed with inspiring ideas, beautiful photography and invaluable information.

About the Author:
Dominic Garnett is hailed as 'Britain's most promising young angling writer'; (Angling Times). He caught his first canal fish, a rudd, as a small boy sitting in the beer garden of a waterside pub. He is just as keen today – although you might find the cheap fibreglass pole and pint glass of maggots replaced by anything from a match rod to specimen or even fly tackle.
Renowned for his lucid, entertaining writing, Dominic is an angling all-rounder with over 200 articles to his name in the UK and abroad, from Angling Times to Fly Fishing & Fly Tying. His aim is to put the fun and soul back into fishing, as well as to instruct. His convention-busting adventures have also featured on the Sky Sports and National Geographic TV channels, while his debut hardback Flyfishing for Coarse Fish became a bestseller.
He is also a keen photographer and in that capacity works for many magazines. He lives near Exeter.
