Pike of Broadland unveiled at Convention

The long-awaited sequel to Stephen Harper's Broadland Pike - the Pike of Broadland - will be unveiled at the Pike Anglers Club's Convention at Stoneleigh next month.

Secretary Mark Barrett said: "Stephen himself will be at the convention on the PAC stand selling signed copies of the book, along of course with the much awaited PAC30 book.

"I have been lucky enough to have a sneak peak at the book and it's just a stunning, more a work of art than a pike fishing book."

Norfolk author Harper's first edition of Broadland Pike has become a much sought-after collector's item, with copies now changing hands for well over £200 - nearly 10 times the orginal price.

The book documents the largest captures from Broadland - largely in their captors' own words.
