"Seeing that my previous volume on 'Trout Streams,' now out of print, was accorded a generous welcome by trout preservers, and a steady demand for it still obtains; and seeing that its original intention was to deal ...with upland burns and wet-fly trout rivers of the 'moorland' type, while later correspondence it has inspired has revealed a wide demand for a material extension of its scope, it has been decided, instead of merely issuing a further edition, rather to replace it with a much expanded volume, in which the salmon river and the chalk stream shall have a place with the moorland river. Such of the material of 'Trout Streams' as has been retained has been wholly re-cast and largely re-written, and has received many additions, while the fresh matter on chalk streams and salmon rivers will be found amply illustrated with practical diagrams and photographs of actual improvements". Chapters include: Trout stream or salmon river - or both?; Upland burn and moorland river; Small dams on the burns; The lessons of the dams; Stake-and-wattle and bag-work dams; Artificial pools on small chalk streams; The food problem on the mountain stream; The mountain stream - with variations; Frogs and snails; The moorland river; Salmon pools on small rivers; The undesirable alien; Netting out chub; The unwanted grayling; Feathered poachers; Stocking with food; Minnows and mills; Wire weirs and fly culture; Stocking with trout; Procuring the ova; Making a salmon river; Stocking with salmon; Groins; Artificial salmon lies; Artificial spates; Fish passes; Artificial tarns; Making a tarn; Hints on preservation; The river-watcher; Counting the cost; Conclusion.
