SPIGWORTH POND, A SYNOPSIS


It was the evening of the 15th of June 1975. All over the United Kingdom, excited anglers waited for the stroke of midnight before they could make their first casts into the murky depths of piscatorial bliss. For the 16th of June is the beginning of a new coarse fishing season, a nine-month period during which anglers can unwind after a week of hard work and feel at one with nature and the beautiful British countryside, feeling normal again. Normal everywhere, except for Spigworth Pond!
Some folk view anglers as eccentric, and most angling clubs have their oddball characters, none more so than the Spinfield Coarse Angling Club. Follow the less than normal antics of carp anglers Jed, Rick and Will, and Walter Wigmore who thinks he is Mr Crabtree, but hardly ever catches anything.
Spigworth Pond, an angling book with a difference, guaranteed to make you titter during the blank hours. Careful you don’t laugh too much though, or you may miss a bite!
