Paul Cook has become well-known for his commissioned artwork and the illustration of several angling books for various publishing houses, and his skills at hand-building traditional fishing tackle.
This, his first book, harks back to a time when carp fishing was still very much in its formative stages. Lost in a Quiet World is an autobiographical account of childhood experience concerning one boy’s pursuit of this species at a mysterious and private estate lake, through failure and success.
Carefully re-drafted from diary accounts, and lovingly illustrated by the author more than three decades later, the book not only serves as a charming reminder of the wonder that all anglers commonly share in the learning and understanding of their craft, but also offers an alternative, more gentle approach to our sport.
