IT never ceases to amaze me the great lengths that an­glers go to, in or­der to re­alise their goals, none more so than the fish­ing fa­nat­ics that we wel­come back this week, who have been, and still are, will­ing to go that ex­tra mile to en­sure that they catch their quarry.Andy Lit­tle, re­garded as one of an­gling’s best spec­i­men hunters, is back. You may well re­mem­ber him writ­ing a carp col­umn for this publi­ca­tion back in the ’80s, and then An­gling Ad­ven­tures, catch­ing spec­i­men species of hu­mon­gous pro­por­tions, in front of the cam­eras, week in, week out. In a new series, we join him on his lat­est ses­sions, as well as look­ing back on some of his eu­reka mo­ments – the dis­cov­er­ies and tac­ti­cal changes that helped him to catch big fish.An­other an­gling great, for­mer Bri­tish record pike holder Neville Fick­ling, will also be en­ter­tain­ing us with his views on preda­tor fish­ing through­out the sea­son, start­ing with a re­port on the PikeAn­glers’ Club 41st An­nual Con­ven­tion, in p.20-21.And there’s more to come next week, when es­teemed an­gler Archie Brad­dock will be re­veal­ing his wa­ter­craft, learned over a life­time of plea­sure on the bank.I hope they all in­spire you over the com­ing weeks. Cheers,
