Fisherman's fall by Roderick Haig-Brown( Book )

11 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1964, Fisherman's Fall brings a unique perspective to the world of fall fishing. In the preface, Robert L. Haig-Brown ruminates on the attempts to preserve the salmon and trout in the rivers of British Columbia. What we know could save them, yet what we do contradicts that knowledge. Gaining the knowledge in this book will help fishers learn the nature of the fish and might even inspire some to contribute to their preservation. Fisherman's Fall gives fishers all the tools to become adept at fishing the rivers of British Columbia as well as firsthand knowledge of the fish of those rivers and their habits. In fabulous prose, readers will discover the unique fishing facts and techniques that accompany the fall season, differences between salmon in salt water and fresh water, the ocean years of salmon, the nature of estuaries, steelhead mysteries, and what makes an ideal stream. Besides gathering wise information, readers get to glimpse the inner thoughts of a fisherman in the chapters of Haig-Brown's own thoughts while fishing. These wise words will speak to any fisher, and they will even speak to those who have never been on a river. Combining angling advice and inner reflection, this book is a must-have for fishermen and fisherwomen of all ages

Fisherman's summer by Roderick Haig-Brown( Book )

16 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An end to Roderick L. Haig-Brown's "seasons" cycle, Fisherman's Summer is a book that can be read again and again, for both knowledge and pleasure. In this installment, he focuses again on the rivers of his native British Columbia such as the Campbell, the Columbia, and the Nimpkish. Among his vast wealth of knowledge concerning fly-fishing, readers are also exposed to his wise reflections. His discussions of the past fishermen of these rivers, including Native Americans and pioneers, and his hope that the future of these rivers will remain abundant and full of life, will touch the hearts of fishermen and nonfishermen alike. Interspersed with his reflections are tips on an array of different aspects of fly-fishing. Readers will learn about fishing for cutthroats, rainbows, summer steelhead, coho salmon, and more; which flies are best for different fish and different environments; and which rivers in his home of British Columbia produce an abundance of certain fish -- all within the delightful confines of summer"--Page 4 of cover

Roderick Haig-Brown, an author best known for his classic books on fly fishing, also wrote two novels about life and work in the northwest woods.
