Synopsis

Tracing the shifts and moods of four seasons along Scotland's River Tweed, Andrew Douglas-Home weaves a story of a close relationship with salmon. Threaded through the year are stories too of one of the country's oldest families; stories of politics, military service, culture and the stewardship of our natural world. Through vivid vignettes and family memories, Andrew Douglas Home spins a homely, yet forthright and dryly witty narrative; both the perfect companion for those who love river fishing and a detailed and informative take on preservation and conservaion; looking back at age-old practices and traditions and looking forward to what we must do to secure the future of the Atlantic salmon and their rivers.
