SALMON Fishing on the River Tweed was conceived as a tribute to the enjoyment Bill Quarry has experienced over sixty years of fishing for salmon on the iconic river.

The inspiration for the book comes from a deep respect for the magnificent Atlantic Salmon as well as the camaraderie and nature of the riverbank, and is a guide to the art of salmon fishing.

The Tweed is one of the great salmon rivers of Britain and the only river in England where an Environment Agency rod licence is not required for angling. The name of the river comes from the Gaelic word for north, "thuaidh" which was later Anglicized into Tweed.

The author has fished on all of the main tributaries of the Tweed, as well as its main beats and the book contains valuable contributions and anecdotes from more than seventy past and present ghillies - the unique Tweed Boatmen. This book is a reminder to anglers that the pleasures and enjoyment to be found in the art of fishing are not all about catching fish and it urges them to appreciate and understand the nature of the riverbank and the

conviviality and fraternity to be found in days by the water.
