One of the great attractions of angling for Atlantic salmon is that our pursuit of
Salar takes us to some of the most beautiful places on earth. And one of the pleasures of
a fishing trip to a distant river lies in the weeks of planning and anticipation. With the
information found in this book we hope the reader will be able to plan many memorable
fishing trips. Therešs nothing else quite like it on the market.
The Atlantic Salmon Atlas, by Roy Arris &
Malcolm Greenhalgh, is a wealth of information about where to go, when to go and who to
contact for fishing when planning a salmon fishing trip . The book contains information
about 327 waters from Canada to the Kola. Each river's entry contains notes on river
character (type of pools, width, flow, etc.), fishing methods and best flies, season
dates, timing of runs and best weeks, and primary booking contacts. The text is also
littered with anecdotes and historical reference.
Particularly noteworthy is the extensive
booking information given for each of the rivers in the eight major regions he surveys.
This detail alone makes the atlas imperative for the travelling angler. Taken from Richard
