Account of CY's encounter with the Black Queen at Redmire

Post by Snape » Mon Jan 07, 2019 12:33 pm

I am looking for the account Chris wrote about when he hooked the Queen at Redmire but I can't locate it.
Does anyone know where it can be found?
Thanks :Hat:

I have a digital copy of the hand-written note detailing it if that's what you're after, Nigel?

That would be very interesting, thanks Russ :Hat:
I have heard it directly from Chris but I was sure he published the account in a book as well but maybe not.

I'm sure I've read something about "the set", including the black queen, in the book, A Century of Carp Fishing..

This is him reading the account but which book is it he's reading from?

Thanks.
I found what I was looking for - page 76 - 78 in Four Seasons thanks to the Oct 77 date in the scanned letter. :Hat:
