Salmon Fishing Scotland

Jock Monteith is a highly experienced Scottish salmon fishing guide, or Ghillie, who has more than 35 years experience salmon fishing on the River Tay and many other Scottish salmon rivers. Salmon Fishing Scotland.

Hugh Falkus covers everything the would-be salmon fisherman could possibly wish to know. He looks at salmon behaviour, tackle, casting, fly fishing, spinning and worming techniques and tactics in a style which is easy to read and informative. The anecdotes combined with documented historical quotations provide both interest and an understanding of how knowledge of the salmon and it's behaviour have improved over the years. Hugh Falkus had his own stretch of salmon river which gave him a unique opportunity to study salmon behaviour especially taking behaviour. This is a valuable reference book for all salmon fishermen. Salmon Fishing.

It has been said that no amount of money could ever create a salmon river. Perhaps this helps to explain why salmon rivers have always been so desirable and cherished, particularly in those more remote parts of Scotland with few natural assets. The author charts two centuries of development right through to the present day on more than 50 different salmon systems. The fascinating histories of these rivers, including ownership and traditions, have never been explored in book form before; previous books on Scottish salmon rivers have tended to be snapshots, focusing on the situation at the time. This volume is the product of extensive research and includes a great deal of anecdotal material from the archives, all of which contributes to a river's character. Whilst written from the angler's perspective, it has a wider appeal to anyone seriously interested in the social and cultural history of the Highlands and Islands. This important work is the most comprehensive volume ever written on Scotland's northern salmon rivers. The Salmon Rivers of the North Highlands and the Outer Hebrides.

Following the success of his book on Irish fishing, Bill Rawlings now writes about another area he knows well - the Islands and Highlands of Scotland. This book is written for all those who wish to enjoy fishing in one of Europe's last great wildernesses. The author has had many years' experience of fishing in Scotland and he uses this knowledge to advise the reader on where to fish, the equipment needed and how to succeed. He gives details of how to make contact with fisheries managers and where to stay. The author writes about his experiences as he travels around the Highlands and also considers the recent decline in fish numbers and offers solutions as to how this trend could be reversed. With its wealth of photographs and evocative text this is a very personal book which will appeal both to those familiar with the area and to those discovering it for the first time.
