David Phillips caught his first 20 lb pike in 1971, aged just 15. Since then he has fished for pike in all corners of the British Isles – including the mighty loughs of Ireland, where he once landed five consecutive pike averaging over 20 lb (and all on artificial lures).
If you love catching pike – or want to learn how to catch them – this is the book you can't afford to miss.
Land Rovers take you to the places others can’t reach and nowhere is this more true than in Africa. David Phillips shares his amazing adventures from the dunes of the Sahara to the desolate mountains of Lesotho and the wildlife-rich plains and swamps of the Okavanga Delta, driving vehicles ranging from vintage Series Is to the latest Discovery 3s.
