The world's best flyfishing site.


Salmon

A game fish (number 3) that runs up rivers in order to spawn. It achieves this without eating and is therefore completely uncatchable. Anglers who say that they are salmon fishing, are in fact involved in the strange esoteric pursuit of artistically stroking the water with a flyline. Those who have tried it tell me that it is fascinating - but not cheap; being marginally more expensive than owning a motorcar. To put this in perspective however, it is considerably less expensive than being owned by a woman.
