About this title

Synopsis:

Fred Buller has spent four decades pursuing stories of Atlantic salmon weighing 50lb and more - sometimes a great deal more. He produced the first volume of The Domesday Book of Giant Salmon in 2007, which immediately became a classic of angling history. As a result of the first volume's publication, yet more extraordinary salmon catches have come to light. In this new second volume, Buller collects the tales of capture of yet more Atlantic salmon over 50lb caught in Europe and North America, including those caught on the fly, by rod, or by other means. Each capture is carefully researched and examined for veracity, and confusions dismembered. All the case histories feature original photographs where available of the catches, their locations, the fishermen, and irreplaceable artefacts; along with snippets of fascinating background information. 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. It is a work of loving dedication and a deserving tribute to the king of fish, which will fascinate anglers of every persuasion. Praise for The Domesday Book of Giant Salmon: 'An utterly absorbing book full of relentless imagination, stories, excitement and great white hunter photographs, it is a "must read" for every salmon-fisher - this book is a masterpiece.' Trout and Salmon 'Years in the making, this is a fisherman's treasury, the definitive collection of every recorded landing of a giant Atlantic salmon and the stories of their capture whether on the fly or by other means.' The Economist 'Remarkable ...a wealth of wonderful stories and pictures.' Financial Times 'An anecdotal delight.' Sunday Telegraph 'This is not only the factual Wisden of salmon angling ...but also the ultimate album of the sport.' Irish Times "If you're a salmon fisherman, it's a must" Ian Botham, The Times
