    would you care to expand a little on how and why its such a exstreme little river? i am taking a season ticked out their this year with luck,and could maybe do with some pointers

    R.C. Bridgett and Cecil Braithwaite are both entertaining anecdotal writers with a few nuggets of information thrown in.

    Talking The Dynamic Approach - Francis T Grant

    I would also recommend Francis T Grants - The Dynamics approach. It is quite rare but available on amazon etc. His sections on tactics are excellent.
    Some of the anecdotal ones are a joy to read. ie in search of silver, atlantic salmon fishing, salmon fishermans year, the doomsday book of salmon, lies, damned lies and other stories, days and nights of salmon fishing on the tweed, atlantic salmon magic and the big fish.
    Enjoy!

    Just got a second hand copy following this recommendation and I can't put it down! Excellent book to help you develop into a more thoughtful salmon angler ( and hopefully more successful!) thanks again.
