The Lost Diary: A summer fishing in pursuit of golden scales

In 1981, when he was thirty-three and had just caught what was then the largest British carp, Chris Yates wondered if he could now dream of capturing Redmire’s Pool’s real monster, the King.

But far from the King himself, it was the idea of such a leviathan that hooked Chris that summer, playing him along the banks for one final season before releasing him back into the world. Chris’s diary of those pivotal months – complete with original illustrations – recounts the final reckoning of an angler’s long relationship with a beloved and mysterious pool.

It is also a magical record of freshly discovered waters, meetings with new friends and unexpected encounters with creatures other than fish and with presences that are not quite human.
