A Water With A History
When I first saw the film of Terry Hearns "Hunt For Black-Eye" I was equally taken with the magical feeling of searching for the unknown, when you look into the water of any lake your imagination runs wild. The Black-Eye was one carp I found pretty special, that was until every Tom, Dick & Harry started queuing to catch her.
