In this long-awaited book, the irrepressible Jerry Hammond shares his memories of some outstanding sessions on both prestigious and lesser known waters.
He tells of his successes and failures, the good mates he's met along the way, and even includes a chapter about his years as a film actor.
'Catching Memories' is not an autobiography, though, and was never intended to be one. It is a remarkable collection of carp stories written in true Hammond style, with energy, enthusiasm, humour and just a hint of obsession.
If you want a good, entertaining bankside - or fireside - read, then this is the one for you.
