The Scales Don’t Lie by Terry Knight £20
Terry Knight is one of the UK’s most passionate – and successful – specimen hunters.
A fisherman since the age of seven, his love of the sport has spanned six decades and taken him all over the UK…and beyond.
In ‘The Scales Don’t Lie’, you’ll find the highlights of a remarkable fishing career, a career that has seen him take one of the biggest pike in the history of the sport, along with countless other huge predators.
But this book isn’t just about pike. You’ll also find stories from his carp fishing exploits (he has a PB of 52lb and how he was an integral part of the North West big-fish scene that pioneered specimen bream and tench fishing in the 1970s.
Then there’s chapters on the catfish of France and Spain, together with tales of exotic giants in Thailand that have provided a whole new challenge in recent years.
You’ll also find out what it took to run one of the UK’s most popular fisheries, Burton Mere, a complex Terry owned and nurtured for more than 30 years.
‘The Scales Don’t Lie’ is, in many ways, a slice of fishing history. All the famous waters are here – Lomond, Llandegfedd, Blithfield, Esthwaite, Derg and more – along with accompanying anecdotes that will resonate with anyone who has a love of fishing.
