A River Runs Through Me : A Life of Salmon Fishing in Scotland
29 In Stock
An evocative account of one man's life spent fishing on arguably the world's best salmon river: a story of family, tradition and the Scottish countryside.
Against the shifting moods and seasons of Scotland's River Tweed, A River Runs Through Me tells the story of a lifelong relationship with one of its most iconic denizens: the Atlantic salmon. Through vivid vignettes and family memories, Andrew Douglas-Home spins a homely yet dryly witty narrative, placing this unique fish and river at its heart. Woven into the decades, amid youthful adventure and memorable catches, are stories too of one of Scotland's oldest families - tales of politics, friendship and stewardship of the natural world.
This poignant and thoughtful book looks back at age-old practices and traditions but also forward to what we must do to secure the future of the Atlantic salmon and their rivers. It is the perfect companion for any angling enthusiast.
