  • Four copies of salmon fishing’s rarest book have come up for sale recently, and as befits a classic book of which just 105 copies were printed, they made high prices.
  • He was the greatest angler of his generation, perhaps of all time. Richard Walker caught huge fish of all species including a record carp. But he also made a massive contribution with his fishing inventions. In an extract from Barrie Richards’ new book about the great man, we look at how he played a pivotal role in developing carbon fibre as a material for rod-making.
  • Lang’s biannual sale goes from strength to strength. This was surely the best of the lot, with spectacular lures, reels and some very special Zane Grey items.
  • Plus: Ebay slot. Book reviews. Classified Ads. Auction dates, and all sorts of wonderful things you can only read about by subscribing to Classic Angling.
