PublicationPaperback & Digital
There are not many firsts in fly fishing - but we believe this is one of them. Essentially it is a journal to accompany you throughout your river fly fishing year. Something you can annotate and make notes in, allowing you to refer back to in years to come - helping you ‘crack the code’ on those difficult days. We’ve called it an Almanac as it takes its inspiration from a few different sources, think of it as a cross over between:
- Old Moore’s Almanac - An annual publication that prophecies what will happen throughout the year - only this one is fly fishing related.
- The Fly Fishers Entomology - A seminal publication from 1836 by Alfred Ronalds, the first to detail river fly life from the angler's point of view.
- A Moleskine Diary - As used by Van Gogh, Picasso & Ernest Hemingway
The 2022 River Fly Anglers Almanac is printed using high-quality uncoated paper (allowing you to easily jot any notes etc), it is roughly 100 pages long. For each season in the salmon fishing year - covering the conditions you are likely to expect - there are pages detailing fly selection info, techniques, tips and tricks, including pages to note your catch return and any tactics used.
