During a carp-angling career that spans almost 3 decades, Mike Willmott has earned himself the reputation of becomining of the country's most successful and highly respected carp anglers of our time. Over the years, Mike has written numerous thought provoking articles in virtually every major carp fishing magazine on the market, has given interesting and perceptive talk/slide shows up and down the country, and has provided guest chapters for several carp fishing books. It was perhaps, therefore inevitable that at some point in time, Mike would compile a book of his own-the only surprising aspect is that it's taken so long! Mike has caught a prolific amount of big carp from a variety of different waters over a long period of time, and his in-depth knowledge on the subject of bait formulation and application is second to none. This has been reflected within the range of baits ,he has developed for his company, Essential Products, who are undoubtedly one of the most successful and highly respected bait companies on today's ever expanding market. In his typically modest fashion though, Mike insists that the subject of bait isn't the single most important factor of successful carping. "Vitally important yes, but first find where they're feeding-then give them a food source they find difficult to refuse," says Mike. A simple philosophy perhaps, but looking through the pages of this book, it obviously works to good effect! Despite his past writings, these days Mike rarely puts pen to paper, however, when he does, you can rest assured that it will be interesting, informative and highly entertaining. Carp Life typifies Mike's unique writing style, but perhaps more importantly, illustrates his sheer dedication, love and undoubted enthusiasm for the sport, from his early day encounters, right the way through to his present day pursuits. One thing is certain though, few anglers could fail to be inspired by Mike's ability to achieve his goals - no matter what stands in his way!
