An expert salmon fisherman tells exactly from A to Z how to go about becoming an adept. From tackle to clothes, what not to get and what to get and why -- the author instructs, advises, warns -- then he's off to the more exciting part, actually going after salmon. But true to his British background, he must do an even more thorough job, so he adds a biography of the salmon, an excellent chapter on river improvement and, also true to form, a section on the cost of this fascinating sport. Stunning pictures of fish, of the lovely English countryside, and diagrams illustrate the book. Any man or woman will enjoy this, for no matter how old a hand one is, salmon fishing has its secrets and this Britisher knows many tricks of the trade.
