Salmon Fishing / Hugh Falkus

Book Description: H. F. & G. Witherby Ltd., London, 1984. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition, First Printing. 448pp, illustrated with nine color plates, over one-hundred photographs, and numerous diagrams, bibliography, index. A monumental modern classic on salmon fishing. The author describes from a lifetime's observation of salmon behavior and his outstanding ability as a naturalist and a writer, communicating his techniques of angling in an uncomplicated way. Following a chapter on the Atlantic salmon's biology, the author describes many aspects of its extraordinary taking behavior based on what he himself has seen, and discusses a startlingly original explanation adduced by his friend Dr. David Goldsborough, all of which has great significance for anglers. The main part of the book then follows: a comprehensive analysis of the salmon angler's approach to his sport; the tactics and techniques for fly fishing, both wet and dry, and all forms of bait fishing. Here the author's vast knowledge, born of experience, is particularly valuable. Hugh Falkus concludes this definitive book with some reflections on the future for our greatest of game fish. $75.00
