From the cover: Bill Rawlings has had many years experience of fishing in Scotland. In this book he uses his knowledge and love of Scotland to advise the reader on where to fish, the equipment needed and how to succeed. He gives details on how to make contact with fisheries managers and where to stay. The author writes about his experiences as he travels around the country from Loch Lomond in the west, via the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Sutherland, Caithness, Inverness and Aberdeenshire to the east coast lowlands.
Of especial concern to the author is the recent decline in fish numbers and he provides the reader with thought-provoking and challenging solutions as to how this trend could be reversed.
With its wealth of photographs and evocative text this personal book will appeal to both those familiar with fishing in Scotland and to those discovering its joys for the first time.
