Foreword by Orri Vigfusson. Introduction by Simon Gawesworth. Topher Browne addresses the question of when and why a salmon takes an angler's fly, as well as related subjects such as what the fish actually sees and questions of technique and presentation, casting techniques, striking, playing and landing your fish, places to go to find salmon, and "a survey of informed opinions about the critical marine survival of the species". Chapters include; Atlantic Salmon Magic; tactical salmon fishing; reading salmon water; flies that take Atlantic salmon; the dry fly; the riffling hitch; the wet fly; the sunk fly; tackling salmon; technique; where to fish for Atlantic salmon; a directory of salmon rivers. A companion book by the same author, 100 Best Flies for Atlantic Salmon is also available. This gives a full-page colour photograph of each of 100 flies chosen to suit the techniques discussed in Atlantic Salmon Magic.
