"What makes a salmon take a lure? Are the responsive moods of salmon predictable? These are the fundamental questions which Salmon Taking Times sets out to answer. The author... asserts that the most important single factor affecting changes in the salmon's behaviour is the supply of oxygen...it follows that the successful angler must pay the closest attention to variations in atmospheric conditions [which cause variations in the oxygen content of the water]". With an Introduction by Bernard Venables and a Commentary by Terry Thomas.

Section Two: Reading River Currents - The behaviour of water; Glides, runs and streams; Use of current; Changing levels of the river; Where salmon lie; Tributaries and confluences. Section Three: Greased-Line Fly Selection - Policy; Colour and form; Size and weight of fly; Fly design.
