From the Publisher:

One of the best writers on salmon fishing on one of the best tactics for salmon.

Thomas R. Pero Editor and Publisher Wild Steelhead & Salmon Magazine

Art Lee again proves himself to be the foremost authority and best writer on what can be described as the culture of salmon fishing. This culture issues from skill and love of gamefishing and fish themselves. Fly fishing techniques are as complex as different languages. To catch fish you must be able to speak the right language for the occasion. Art Lee s Tying and Fishing the Riffling Hitch will help you learn the language of the hitch, master a unique and enthralling skill and adopt a kind of holistic approach to one of the most sophisticated refinements in all of sport. Once learned you will never go back.

Orri Vigfusson Chairman of the North Atlantic Salmon Fund and world-renowned angler conservationist

Art Lee is a great fisherman and a great writer. He is also a dedicated and tireless conservationist. Tying and Fishing the Riffling Hitch is the definitive work on this highly successful method of taking Atlantic Salmon that was popularized by the incomparable Lee Wulff."

Donal C. O Brien, Jr., Esq. Chairman, U.S. Atlantic Salmon Federation Chairman, National Audubon Society Senior Partner, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy

Art Lee is a man who always tells the truth.

Richard Adams Legendary North American Atlantic Salmon guide

This book, whose 105 pages are devoted exclusively to the exciting technique of the riffling hitch, is a delight, and will prove an inspiration to adventurous fishers wishing to give the method a go. The photographs are stunning, the diagrams clear and attractive, and the author s instructions concise and illuminating.
