A fish of puzzling moods and limited predictability, the Atlant ic salmon is not easily understood. This book helps unravel the mysteries of this king of fishes. It is an authoritative and personal account not onlyof the salmon and how it can be tempted to the fly, but of its preferences , personality and behaviour. It is a tale of the salmon's life and prospects; it is a record of the lore and traditions which surround salmon fishing in Canada and the United States. Individual chapters cover all the salmon producing areas of North America from the coast of Maine through to the northernmost reaches of Newfoundland, Labrador and Ungava and there are tables of proven methods on two dozen major rivers. Gary Anderson shares his intimate knowledge of the salmon and its rivers only after many years of detailed observation and research. There are over a hundred photographs covering ascore of rivers as well as line drawings, sketches and maps by wildlite ar tist Ed Sutton. This book is of interest to any fisherman who has dreamed of one day fishing the mighty salmon. It will teach the novice how to begin and for the most devout expert it will provide new insights. The book is written with a depth of understanding and appreciation of nature which inextricably links the angler with the salmon and the vaiues of the past with thepromise of the future."
