About this title


Oglesby, Arthur. Salmon. London, MacDonald, 1971. 22cm x 14.3cm. xiii, 224 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. In protective Mylar. With secret plan for sea salmon catch-areas. Illustrated with line drawings and black and white photographs. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Includes for example the following chapters: Facts and Fancies/ Seasons and Methods/ Fly Fishing Techniques/ Suck-Fly Fishing Tactics/ Spinning/ Early Season Spinning on Big Rivers/ Mid-Season and Medium Stream-Spinning Tactics/ Small Streams and Ultra-Light Spinning/ Days with the Spinner and a Camera/ The Illusion of Life/ Worming Prawning/ Shrimp Fishing/ The Height of the Water/ The Lure of Norway/ Salmon Through the Looking Glass/ A Few Haraldsen Tours/ Disease and Netting/ Casting Hints and Tips/ Thoughts on Wading, Playing, Gaffing and Tailing/ Gillies and Boatmen/ Tackle Tips/ Fly Tying/ American and Canadian Methods etc. Salmon can be caught on rod and line, but salmon fishing is not and never can be an exact science because the fish enter fresh water to breed, not to feed. The art of catching them is not to be sought in facts, nor, beyond a certain point, in fancies- though all fisherman have their own theories. What really counts is experience. Oglesby, captor of nearly a thousand salmon, described as one of the finest fly-fishermen in Europe, and himself a great angling photographer, is among the most experienced writers on the subject.
