The Atlantic salmon is the king of game fish. Sleek and silvery, an astonishing leaper, paradoxical in his habits and behavior and electrifying when hooked, Salmo salar is the ultimate angling quarry. And now, at last, we have a thoroughly revised and updated version of the classic 1958 book on this great game fish by one of the world's leading anglers. It is graced by scores of new photographs, drawings by the author, and several important new chapters. Lee Wulff provides expert advice on all phases of this great sport - tackle, casting, presentation of both wet and dry flies, fly selection, wading, where fish lie and how to make them strike, and how best to land salmon. (Much of what Wulff says is applicable to all forms of fly fishing.) There are shrewd and telling observations on the biology and ecology of the salmon, and strong, measured advice on how salmon fishing can be protected and improved, so that thousands of new anglers can share the pleasures of this exciting brand of fishing. Throughout the book, there is a wealth of fascinating stories from the author's fifty years of salmon fishing throughout the world - and at the end, a stirring new account of Wulff's pioneering flights, in the thirties, in a single-engine plane, in search of salmon. Not merely for those who have fished for salmon but for the legions of fly fishermen who dream of doing so and who may eventually realize their dreams, The Atlantic Salmon is a rich, classic book not to be missed.
"Everything from the fish's natural history to what makes it rise and how to catch it."--Fly Fisherman
