Salmon is the name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae, which also includes trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Within this volume, the author presents a complete guide to salmon fishing, providing simple information and instructions on everything that a salmon fisher needs to know. Contents include: ?Forming the Tag, Tail and Butt?, ?Salmon Flies?, ?Dressing the Salmon Fly?, ?The Lesson?, ?The Salmon Fly Rod, Reel, etc?, ?Lessons in Casting?, ?Fishing the salmon Fly in Low Water?, ?Hooking and Playing the Fish?, ?Hooks and Knots?, ?Spinning for Salmon?, ?Prawning and Worm Fishing?, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.
