Atlantic Salmon Chronicles: The Fish, the Rivers, the Fly-Fishing Techniques and Equipment

Front Cover

Atlantic Salmon Chronicles is the most instructive salmon book in 40 years. An artful blend of technology, analysis and lyrical prose, it is the perfect complement to Lee Wulff's 1958 classic on Atlantic salmon. Richard Nightingale has been fishing most of his life and salmon fishing for more than three decades. Ever challenging conventional wisdom, in the first half of this book he offers a totally new look at fly rods and lines, a critical evaluation of fly reels, new insights into how one chooses flies and a review of other fishing tackle and equipment. The second half of the book contains a widely acclaimed evaluation of the conservation of Atlantic salmon as well as a sentimental journey along his "sacred salmon rivers." With its clean, elegant writing; evocative original art by Thomas A. Daly; exquisite color photographs; and some of the author's favorite salmon recipes, this truly is a book to savor.
