Zander, or pike-perch, have been shrouded in controversy ever since they were first introduced into Britain’s rivers & drains in 1963. They were soon blamed for the decline in fish stocks in the Fens, where they were initially introduced. Notwithstanding this, 40 years after their introduction, zander are now widely accepted & are regarded by many anglers as almost a cult fish. Revealing the secrets of where & how to catch zander, this helpful guide addresses topics such as zander tackle, baits, rigs, fishing methods, & techniques; how to locate your prey as well as how to land, handle, & photograph your fish; & the zander waters of the Fens, the Warwickshire Avon, the canals of the West Midlands, the Severn, & elsewhere.
