In the early 70s as a teenager i had a collection of observer books, the ones i remember having were British birds,birds eggs,fresh water fishes,pond life and British trees and one or two others, these books were an essential when out exploring too use as a reverence.
I now see that some of...
Just got the 2 copies this book from Spey Bros. Top Salmon Flies vol 1 and 2.
I prefer the second volume.
But both books imo are good.
I like the fact it tells you different methods, and different times to fish the particular fly.
Its mostly from Skandi fishers, and Skandi river.
I personally do own the three books Rare & Unusual Feathers Vol. 1 and 2 and Forgotten Flies and would never give them
away but a friend of mine wants to sell his copies. They were never used and are untouched as new. The contain a wealth
of information for the classic fly dresser. PM pls. if...
as a novice I stumbled upon a book
salmon fishing a practical guide by Hugh Falkus .
A good read both entertaining and educational.
It makes me think are there any other good books for a novice that you consider are a must read . Likewise what Magazine are worth spending money on.

A post this evening by JACK POWER referred to a book by Sidney Spencer. I have most of his books and they are my absolute favourites from my small library. I lend them to no one!
What has always intrigued me is who was Sidney Spencer... is the name a pen-name? What did he do other than...
Got a few books I'm looking to sell, would rather sell them in one lot and would need to be collected [Thornhill, DG3] as postage would be a fair price I'd imagine. Eight books as per photos, asking £20 for the lot.
I've just joined the forum and imagine that experienced members are asked these basic questions all of the time .......but ......here goes.
Are there any simple (easy to follow) books on fly patterns and fly tying for salmon (and sea trout) flies? I often tie my own trout flies but have...
I've been fishing since I was a nipper and salmon fishing for over twenty years on the river ribble - I've read a lot of books about salmon fishing and always wanted to write one a little different - Its safe to say that that has been achieved in my debut book Terminal Chancer.
Can anyone please recommend some Introductory level, instructional books on Salmon fishing, suitable for a still water trout fisherman?
Spey casting, Skagit , spinning ,tackle choice, fly selection,fly tying and river-craft would all be of interest.
