Vol 1 reprint & Vol 2 1st edition. Pair of large 4to hardbacks. Pp488;192. Colour & sepia photographs throughout. Fine new copies in dust-wrapper. Thirty years on from The Domesday Book of Mammoth Pike, Fred Buller has now produced the ultimate book of huge salmon. He gives accounts of 170 fly-caught fish of over 50lb, and of 152 fish weighing over sixty pounds whether caught by fly, bait, net or poaching. As a result of the first volume's publication, yet more extraordinary salmon catches have come to light. In the new second volume, Buller recounts the capture of yet more Atlantic salmon over 50lb caught in Europeand North America. Much of the book is a testament to a world that has almost disappeared - of great catches and huge fish taken on legendary rivers: the Grand Cascapedia, Restigouche, Tay, Alten, Namsen and Vosso in their heyday between 1880 and 1930. This is a two-volume set, at an extremely advantageous price, consisting of the revised second edition reprint of Volume I and the first edition of Volume II. (Previous price £85.00).
