"Mr. Menzies ...is well known as the expert of the Scottish Fishery Board. He covers the whole subject, but, as he confessess to 'a certain amount of sympathy' with those who despise all forms of salmon fishing but the fly, his descriptions of spinning, of prawn-fishing, and of the modern development of the fixed-spool reel, are not so full as those of the various methods of fly fishing. These latter he treats very fully". Chapters include: Rods and their selection; Lines and casts; Fly-fishing - casting; Fishing a pool; Hooks and flies; Knots; Greased line fishing; Spring fishing; Spring fishing in low water; Grilse fishing; Fishing in tidal waters; Loch fishing; Minnow and prawn fishing; Waders, wading and landing fish; Accessories and storage of gear; Rights and laws of fishing; River improvements; The life of the salmon.
