Hugh Falkus covers everything the would-be salmon fisherman could possibly wish to know. He looks at salmon behaviour, tackle, casting, fly fishing, spinning and worming techniques and tactics in a style which is easy to read and informative. The anecdotes combined with documented historical quotations provide both interest and an understanding of how knowledge of the salmon and it's behaviour have improved over the years. Hugh Falkus had his own stretch of salmon river which gave him a unique opportunity to study salmon behaviour especially taking behaviour. This is a valuable reference book for all salmon fishermen.
