Atlantic salmon angling
is intimidating to some, challenging for most, and second-nature to a few. To help the first two groups, and entertain (perhaps
intrigue) the last, Paul Marriner has distilled more than forty years of experiences on some 150 publicly-accessible salmon
rivers into Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference. For example, Chapter 10 - Patterns, focuses on designs
to cope with the range of conditions (e.g., pool type, season, water conditions, time of day) encountered streamside. Although
each design is illustrated with a successful pattern, the intent is to simultaneously educate and encourage innovation.
Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference is 8.5 x 11 inches, 240 pages, with more than
300 photos and illustrations. All of the more than 250 photos are in colour.
