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.
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 bank.
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 throughout the year.
So 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.
