Example text

If an angler hooks one downstream everyone in the procession of five or six rods fishes with extra care on the presumption that a run of salmon is at hand. Since the water was rather deep and the current fairly strong I used a sinking line with a fourteen-foot leaderone that I since have found to be much longer than necessary. Although fish were taken by everyone else that morning, I didn't have even a strike. That afternoon I changed tackle, selecting an eight-and-a-half-foot fiberglas rod which was rigged with a white floating line with ten feet of sinking green-colored tip.

For the new plates, we decided to select a cross section of flies of historical and practical interest as well as those that people might otherwise not see. Often these were examples of the style and dressing of specific tiers rather than exact renditions of known patterns. In addition to traditional salmon flies, others were chosen to exhibit unusual and uncommon variations that were noted by the author as being of special interest. In addition to the new color plates, I felt it essential to include patterns to accompany the flies new to the book.

So before becoming involved with the new tackle and tactics of the sport, let's learn something about the varying characteristics of typical salmon rivers, and then let's become better acquainted with the very beautiful, unusual, smart and sturdy fish we hope so often to catchSalmo Salar, whose name means "the leaper"the noble Atlantic salmon.
