“Some of the stories of my early angling history were recorded in A Line On The Water (1991). With the help of my son Oliver, this book continues from where that one paused, along with some other glances over my shoulder, back into the past. The words ‘dark water’ seemed to reoccur now and again as I put the chapters of this book together – I realised that it was often at those very rare times when there was a real rush of adrenaline; incidents that make an angling life so special – and that those words would make a great title for an angling book.”
“Dark Water, a wonderfully bright book; attractive to the eye and mind. I’m honoured to be quoted on the back dust jacket.” CHRIS CAMUTO
“Gripping, I felt I was taken to the water’s edge! Regarding returning back to Nigel Botherway’s tent that night, I’m just glad it wasn’t me!” PAUL BELSTEN
“A Line On The Water is still one of my favourite books so I was really looking forward to reading this one. I was not disappointed, excellent stuff again! Loved it!” KEVIN DOBSON
“What a great sequel to A Line On The Water! A quality read, very nicely laid-out and laced with great photos.” DAVE IVEY
“The ‘spirit’ of angling and ‘why we do it’ are very eloquently portrayed; The ‘all-round’ angler will love this book, and the two ‘Indiana Jones’-style mahseer chapters are worth the price of admission on their own!” MARTIN MUMBY Catch Cult
