    Default Good book

    Hi folks
    I'm looking for a good book to read, I'm not great at reading books as my mind tends to wonder abit and I get side tracked to easy, so a book that is obviously something on the salmon fishing side of things or maybe casting, preferably not an author with a load of marbles in his mouth either. Cheers

    Casting doesn't come well from books: you're better off using DVD or online resources for those aspects.

    There aren't many good modern books about. Hugh Falkus' Salmon Fishing was a masterpiece but is now feeling very dated.

    If you've got a short attention span and prefer a web-based solution, have a look at Just One Week, which is specifically written for novices There are 92 bite-sized articles to choose from and you can take them in any order you like, with lots of photos, graphics and diagrams.

    I'm currently reading the Chris Newton book on Falkus, 'A Life of the Edge', and it really is fantastic.

    Not only an interesting topic but beautifully written.

    Definitely should be on your short list.

    What a life that man had...!

    My favourites which I have reread several times

    I know a good place by Clive gammon

    A man may fish by TC kingsmill Moore

    Fishing the wilder Shores by Sidney spencer

    Trout bum by John Gierach (and all his other books for that matter)

    The longest silence by Thomas McGuane

    As for instruction find DVDs better eg Simon Gawesworth
