    Yep. Great humerous read. Waiting for James to deliver his 2nd offering. If its as good the Terminal Chancer it will be a must buy. Cant understand why Trout and Salmon magazine refused the offer to review the Terminal Chancer, I suppose they dont like anything a bit left field.

    Only a short book, but a great read is Salmon Fishing on Small Rivers by (the sadly recently deceased) Charles Bingham. Nicely written and some lovely stories.

    I've just finished Salmon Fishing on the Thurso which was good, but a little 'plummy' in it's writing at times. At least I'll be able to talk some knoweledge when I'm up there the week after next!

    I have read a lot of books about salmon fishing and by far the most interesting is " A Rod Well Bent " by R. N. Lochhead.
    Not an instructional book but but just his memories of a life spent salmon fishing in Scotland in the time before and after the second world war.
    It was first published in 1951 and there are still copies available from second hand book sellers.
    I had always wanted to meet him, especially as in later life I fished many of the rivers he describes and eventually I discovered that he lived in Birnam on the Tay and his local beat was probably Newtyle but it was too late by then.

    You are right MCX - it is utter bollox. I couldn't believe he was serious when I first read it...
