Many years in the making, and accompanied by its own website, this book covers everything you need to know about Irish sea-trout and fishing for them in Ireland. Fifty Irish sea-trout waters are described - estuaries, rivers and loughs - with grid references, historical details, travel, permit and accommodation information. Other chapters include the history of Irish sea-trout fishing, tackle, angling techniques and lures and fly-patterns, while a separate section is devoted to the biology of the sea-trout. Lavishly illustrated with B&W photographs and a 48-page colour section for the fly patterns.
'the definitive book on Irish sea trout fishing . . . Driven by a narrative that transports the reader to a mid summer river bank as dusk falls, shadows lengthen and sedges dance, this wonderful publication is a must have for those anglers entranced by a species that to this day is still shrouded in mystery' - Ashley Hayden, www.anirishanglersworld.com
'. . . not so much impossible to put down, as difficult to pick up, there is so much of it. The 480 pages cover every trickle that once smelt a white trout and in the process you get treated to more insider knowledge and more good advice and more stories than any reader has a right to wish. Truly, they do not write books like this any more, almost certainly because you don’t come across such stellar combinations of writers more than once in an epoch.' - Andrew Herd, Waterlog
' . . . invaluable . . . suffused with a shining passion for the subject . . . Dr McCully is a talented writer and his personal . . . style makes this entire book a delight' - David Profumo, Country Life
