In Carp Channel Monthly this month, Nigel Botherway talks to Chris Ball about the development of the bite alarm including the late, great Dick Walker’s early, hand-made ‘Bedlam’ bite alarms.

The pair look at the first Delkim bite alarms as he shows off his collection of classic alarms from the 1970s onwards… and how the ‘Optonic’ changed everything… and went on to sell over 500,000 units.

Plus Chris talks about the launch of Carp Talk – the UK weekly magazine for carp anglers – and some of its biggest scoops.
