From the introduction

“Nowhere in Britain is more synonymous with pike and pike fishing than Broadland. This book, based on many years of research and study, includes much new material and is a totally revised, updated and enlarged second edition to Broadland Pike, 1998.

In this new edition, The Pike of Broadland chronicles 90 of the largest recorded captures from this important region, all 32 lbs 8 ozs or over, with stories of 33 in excess of 35 pounds, and including six 40-pounders.

Also detailed are rumours and legends of days gone by, along with pike fishing tales and monsters from the 1800s, plus more accurately recorded huge pike from contemporary times.

In full colour throughout, with 17 illustrations, 194 colour photographs and 69 in black and white, many published for the first time, this fascinating book records the highlights of over 125 years of Broadland’s incredible pike fishing history; it will inspire both novice and expert pike angler to emulate the enthralling captures of these awe-inspiring pike.”


The Pike of Broadland is simply a treasure and a worthy companion to sit beside our very finest angling books. Stephen has done angling history and literature a great service.” KEVIN CLIFFORD
