New Fly Fishing Books: The Domesday Book of Giant Salmon

A new book out from British publisher Constable & Robinson traces the history and mystique of giant salmon in pictures and words. Sounding like a great seasonal gift for those who like to both gawk and dream, the 400-page, five-pound Domesday Book of Giant Salmon is, according to review David Profumo, a “highly enjoyable volume.” “Organised into several categories fly-caught fish, any-method monsters in excess of 60lb, even ones that got away there is a discursive account of the circumstances of each leviathan’s capture, ranging from detailed (and sometimes contradictory) first-hand narratives to the sketchiest of historical anecdotes.” On
