A Carp To Begin WithJohn Noxon
“Why do I like fishing? Because it takes me to such beautiful places and to meet such nice people”. John Nixon.Born in Surrey in 1933, John did not start fishing until he was 14, his first fish being a small wild carp from a farm pond. On joining the RAF as an engineering apprentice in 1950 he was stationed near Hitchin, home of Richard Walker, whom John wrote to and was invited to go perch fishing with, at Arlesey Lake.
After leaving the RAF in 1956, John worked at several editorial jobs in industry and was a regular freelance contributor to most of the angling press, as well as writing three books on fishing. A Carp To Begin With is a collection of some of John Nixon’s adventures and experiences over six decades of fishing for a wide variety of species, from shark to gudgeon. A fantastic read, with stunning photographs, this book will be a hard one to put down.
