The salmon remains a dream catch for many flyfishermen, and for years its life was something of a mystery as little was known about its migrations and spawning behaviour. The author has collected and collated a mass of reports and information to create this two-part reference work. Part One covers the biology and life-cycle of the salmon from egg to fully mature adult, with first-hand and current data on its movements, behaviour and habits. By increasing his knowledge of the salmon, the angler should increase his chances of catching this elusive fish. Charts, diagrams, photographs and tables all support the information presented as background details to this popular fish.

"The Atlantic salmon that has just run into freshwater from the sea is the most perfect of fish. .For the angler it is the ultimate prize: it does not feed in freshwater and is thus difficult to hook, and even when hooked is not easy to land. .There is no doubt, .that the angler who understands the salmon well will catch it in greater numbers."
