    Default Good Book

    Hi Boys and Girls
    My brother whos over fifty started fly fishing for trout in august and has had a few casts for greyling last month.
    Can anyone reccomend a good book to help him along and refer back to.
    He has been fishing the upper clyde at Bigger.
    He is also a walker and is doing the munros for the second time this time with a travel rod on the rucksack.

    I fished Coulter, Symington, Wolfclyde and Lamington in my earlier years when my passion was dry fly for trout, before I was captured by the salmon.
    Maybe one day the salmon will get past Stonebyres and the Falls of Clyde and then we will have a premier salmon river on our doorstep. (Although it is doing not too bad for salmon at the moment!)

    If you can find them , then " Let's fish the Clyde" and " Let's fish Again " by Bert Sharp are Clyde classics.

    Journalist and angler Dennis Moss has a new book on fly fishing in Ireland. His last book was a real sucess and he has put a great deal into this one. Might be worth a look!

    Irish Rise: Reflections of Days by Lake and Stream
    Dennis Moss
    SEPTEMBER 2010
    The essence of this book is about wild fishing with a fly rod, beginning with early days on a humble
    tributary of the River Thames learning the art of fly fishing, and concluding on the majestic wide
    open spaces of the limestone loughs of the west of Ireland. As well as reminiscences, there are
    topical thoughts and observations about conservation of wild stock, the effects of angler pressure,
    and favourite flies.
    The underlying theme that hopefully comes through is a love of fly fishing in wild places; in particular
    hunting big brown trout with a dry fly on the rich clearwater loughs of Ireland
    Salmo salar
