A Fish for Every Season by Stewart Allum

Post by Mark » Mon Apr 06, 2020 6:30 pm

I have just pre-ordered myself a copy of 'A Fish for Every Season' by Stewart Allum, I cannot resist a chub book.

A foreword from Matt Hayes and comprising over 300 pages.

There are few fish which so perfectly encapsulate the title of this book as the humble chub. It can be relied on to provide sport on the balmiest of summer days through to the bitter, icy cold of deepest winter and can be caught on just about every type of bait and method imaginable. It grows to an impressive size and whilst those of modest proportions can often be caught in goodly numbers, the very largest, craftiest specimens can prove exasperatingly difficult to tempt and even then, the outcome is far from certain.

Stewart Allum has pursued chub throughout the length and breadth of this island, a passion born when, as a schoolboy, he first enviously regarded the brassy, thickset form resting within his Dad’s landing net. Since then, Stewart has caught many a worthy chub, having pursued them alongside some of Britain’s finest anglers in a career spanning over sixty years, the highlights of which are recorded within the pages of this book.

I have one on order too Mark! I was privileged to know Stewart when I was a member of the Chub Study Group back in the day. He is a genuine, honest angler and I can't wait to read his book!

A top class angler, I reckon his book will certainly be of great interest to all of us.
