Just received a copy of Mike Ladle & Steve Pitts new book “Angling on the Edge”. It is a stunning book which covers the exploits of anglers from all around the world. Perfect for the coffee table or when you need some inspiration to pack up your tackle and head overseas for a change of scene.
Divided into sections covering Indian Ocean, Central America, Transatlantic Relatives (USA), Freshwater Giants, Down Under (Australia, New Zealand and Fiji) and the Caribbean it is full of fishing anecdotes that will get your pulse racing.
Mike Ladle and I have been friends for a long time and correspond regularly. Mike is a renowned fisheries scientist (now retired) and is regarded as a lure fishing guru in the UK. He has written many books on lure, bass and mullet fishing and written regular lure fishing columns in several UK angling magazines. Mike has collaborated on several books with his angling pal Steve Pitts and this is the latest.
Mike helped me enormously when I started lure fishing and in return I used to write anecdotal accounts of my exploits regularly for his Operation Sea Angler website Operation Sea Angler For Angling on the Edge, Mike gathered his favourite selection of my anecdotes, covering fishing the flats, fly fishing at Taupo and lure fishing in Fiji, and reproduced them in their original format in the Down Under chapter. For that I am humbled and extremely grateful.
If you are looking for something a bit different to inspire future fishing trips, a gift or a book to slip into the Christmas stocking then Angling on the Edge is worth a look. Email Mike Ladle on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to order a copy.
