This volume was originally published in 1843 and is one of the finest books about our sport ever written. It is superbly illustrated by eight different artists including Edwin Landseer RA. This FFCL edition is taken from the 4th edition of 1898 edited by Sir Herbert Maxwell including his important footnotes. "The Tweed has provided inspiration for a wealth of books; but none of them is more outstanding than that masterpiece Days and Nights of Salmon Fishing by William Scrope, published in 1843. No keen Tweed angler should fail to study this book" From A Salmon Fisher's Odyssey, John Ashley-Cooper.
