1st Edition. This book is the first to deal exclusively with salmon fishing in New Zealand – the practical where, when and how of the sport, and its history, biology and economic significance.
PART 1 is for the reader whose prime objective is to catch a limit bag of big salmon. It covers weather and water conditions; the main salmon rivers and where to go; how to identify the most promising features of a typical reach of water; the techniques of spinning and fly fishing; selecting the deadliest gear; striking, playing, and landing the great fish; gutting and cooking it; and hints on clothing and safety.
PART 2 fills in the background: the salmon species and the quinnat life-cycle; introduction of salmon into New Zealand; research and management problems; threats to the fishing and some brighter prospects; notes on water safety. The many photographs demonstrate the size and beauty of this great quinnat and the bountiful catches being made in their rivers; the drawings help the reader to recognise promising holes when he sees them, and to perfect his catching technique. The author’s long years of salmon fishing and his verve and humour make it a delight to read.
Includes B&W and colour photos, diagrams and a fold-out river map.
