    Don't bother. Righyni had a unique capacity for catching salmon, but instead of just accepting the fact, he created a theory to underpin his success, which to be frank, is complete non-scientific garbage. It's a great pity because he could have written a really good instructional book based on his techniques rather than his thoughts.

    Default A good book

    Without contradicting any of the other suggestions, may I draw your attention to John Shewey's book "Dee Flies and Spey Flies: their history and construction"?

    This is still available in paperback although the hardback version is out-of-print and costs a fortune. There are some irritatingly obsequious quotations from nineteenth century writers worshipping the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, but the book gives very full advice on the tying of these flies and is lavishly furnished with stunning photographs. There is also some sage advice on fishing for steelhead (Shewey is an American who lives in Oregon) which makes very pleasurable and worthwhile reading. If you are a fly-dresser, by reading this book you will learn a lot about the skill and adaptability of the nineteenth-century dressers native to these two magnificent Scottish rivers. To be savoured with a good Speyside malt by your side.

    I know the feeling - absolutely brilliant! I got a copy for Christmas and had to stuff a pillow in my mouth to avoid waking the missus!!
