John Wilson gives his negatives and slides to Carp-Talk's library

John Wilson gives his negatives and slides to Carp-Talk's librarySome readers may be aware that one of the three founders of Carp-Talk, Kevin Clifford, has for many years been building up an angling magazine and newspaper library. Further details are available on our website, but it is fair to say that the library is without doubt one of the most extensive and encompassing in the country, in its specialist field. Apart from the extensive range of angling newspapers and magazines, which date back to 1880, it also has a comprehensive collection of modern angling books, plus photographs, letters and miscellaneous documents. The library is housed in several separate rooms at the Carp-Talk offices and its material is available for anyone involved in serious research.

Kevin Clifford and Carp-Talk are now proud to announce that John Wilson has given his entire collection of photographs, negatives and slides to the library. The negatives and slides number in excess of 100,000 and cover John's hugely successful career in angling that dates back over 50 years in the UK and around the world. John's collection adds greatly to the library's existing photographic collection that derives from the company's three magazines, Kevin's own photographic collection and the collection of photographs and negatives of Colin Graham/Colin Dyson of the now defunct Coarse Angler magazine.
