Barry Thornton

Saltwater Fly Fishing For Pacific Salmon
by Barry M.Thornton

"Barry Thornton is a world expert on fly fishing steelhead and taking salmon on the fly in saltwater." Paul Quinnett, Sporting Classics Magazine

We live in an age of specialization. There's little question but that the best accessible saltwater salmon fishing for fly anglers runs in and around Vancouver Island and in the protected waters of Alaska's Inside Passage. From his base in Comox, Barry Thornton's ideally situated to offer that. His unpretentious, information-packed book tells you everything you need.

His 176 page paperback takes you through salmon hunting with the help of birds and other natural indicators for Coho, Pink and Chinooks and covers open water and beach and estuary fly fishing. Editor's note: The key on page 25 to what you do were is worth the book's price alone!

Then he turns to casting gear and equipment, saltwater flies and salmon and angler management.

Editor's note: I fished salmon in California tidewater for over 40 years and learned a number of valuable points from this book.
