Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1964, Fishermans Fall brings a unique perspective to the world of fall fishing. In the preface, Robert L. Haig-Brown ruminates on the attempts to preserve the salmon and trout in the rivers of British Columbia. What we know could save them, yet what we do contradicts that knowledge. Gaining the knowledge in this book will help fishers learn the nature of the fish and might even inspire some to contribute to their preservation.

Fishermans Fall gives fishers all the tools to become adept at fishing the rivers of British Columbia as well as firsthand knowledge of the fish of those rivers and their habits. In fabulous prose, readers will discover the unique fishing facts and techniques that accompany the fall season, differences between salmon in salt water and fresh water, the ocean years of salmon, the nature of estuaries, steelhead mysteries, and what makes an ideal stream.Besides gathering wise information, readers get to glimpse the inner thoughts of a fisherman in the chapters of Haig-Browns own thoughts while fishing. These wise words will speak to any fisher, and they will even speak to those who have never been on a river. Combining angling advice and inner reflection, this book is a must-have for fishermen and fisherwomen of all ages.

Synopsis:

“Of all the times of the year . . . the fall is the most exciting. . . . Fall is the time of movement.”
