"Many books on salmon fishing have been written, ...Not one, however, has made any attempt to trace the course of the revolution which has taken place in methods and tackle in the last generation. Major K. Dawson, whose works on shooting and fishing are well-known, sets out to make this book a modern classic, embodying all the practical improvements in the art that have been made in recent years". Based principally on West Country (Devon) fishing, Major Dawson's work covers both flyfishing and spinning comprehensively. Chapters include: Foreword; Evolution and revolution; Fly fishing; Spinning tackle; Spinning and prawning; Plug fishing for salmon; Playing a salmon; Landing a salmon; Losing salmon; The cost of salmon fishing; Fishing a strange river; Fishing association water; Kit and accessories; The danger of interfering with nature; Some reflections on kelts; The perils of the salmon; Sea trout here and there; Day fishing for sea trout; Night fishing for sea trout.
