Take an in-depth look into a fascinating species that has been called the king of all freshwater game fish. Fly fishing for Atlantic salmon has a long, rich history which began in Europe and is now deeply entrenched into the culture of northeastern North America.
This book examines Atlantic salmon behavior and angling approaches as developed through the eyes and mind of expert angler Jim Lorentz. The theories and conclusions discussed in the book are the result of the author spending nearly every day of the late spring, summer and early autumn riveted to a salmon river. Many of the strategies and techniques discussed are new to Atlantic salmon fly fishing and challenge many of the ideas that have been considered standard practice.
