New Zealand’s Treasury of Trout & Salmon: An Angling Anthology
By John Parsons & Bryn Hammond

New Zealand’s celebrated trout and salmon fishing heritage comes comprehensively alive for the first time at the hands of two painstaking researchers, anglers John Parsons and Bryn Hammond. This collection of 375 excerpts from the published works of 132 authors amounts to well over 200,000 words - words illuminating the New Zealand trout and salmon fishing experience from its beginnings in Britain and America in the late 1800s right up to the present day.

The text is divided into 29 chapters devoted to a full range of anglers' interests, from monster fish to artificial flies, paraphernalia to running waters, opening days to seasons of the year, and so on. New Zealand writers predominate, but excerpts from the works of many overseas writers are embodied.

Appended is the first full bibliography of New Zealand angling literature ever attempted (339 titles), a list of relevant periodicals past and present, and brief biographies of certain authors.

Contains 20 fine colour plates, and more than 100 historic and contemporary black and white photographs and illustrations.
