Chris Yates is a photographer, an author, the Editor of Waterlog magazine, and first and foremost a fisherman. He was first inspired by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond when he was five. Thirty years later, he caught what was then the biggest carp – and the biggest fish – in England and went on to write about his experiences in books, in his own magazine, in radio programmes and in the BBC2 series 'A Passion for Angling'. He lives in south Wiltshire. His book How to Fish is published by Penguin.
