Though an enthusiastic sea-fisher as a child, Chris Yates has concentrated on freshwater throughout his fishing life. In "Out of the Blue" he describes his return to the sea after half a life-time and his increasing passion for its changeable moods and habits. Remaining faithful to his fundamental angling ethic - fishing simply with the minimum of tackle and always using his old split cane carp rod - he ventures into different waters and nets a cast of new experiences. Far from the quiet enchantment of his local reed-fringed, willow-hung waters, he discovers another, more elemental, more mysterious world.

Author Biography - Chris Yates
Chris Yates is a photographer and author, but first and foremost he is a fisherman. When he was five, he was inspired by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond. Thirty years later, he caught what was then the biggest fish in England. He went on to talk about his experiences in books, magazines and in the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling. His latest book is How to Fish.
