“Few fish have captured the souls and minds of men and women quite like wild Atlantic salmon.” — Bill Taylor, President, Atlantic Salmon Federation

Celebrating 75 years of conservation, the Atlantic Salmon Treasury works as a “best of” for the influential Atlantic Salmon Journal. This fascinating volume includes a curated selection of articles and essays by some of North America’s best writers on the art and lore of the wild Atlantic salmon.

Beginning in 1948, the Atlantic Salmon Journal began publishing information and conservation material about the “king of fish.” In 1975, it released a Treasury from its first 25 years. This new edition takes up where the earlier volume ended, tracing the rise of salmon angling as a sport and into the era of conservation and the catch-and-release movement. The result is a journey through time with acclaimed writers such as Harry Bruce, Joan Wulff, Wilfred Carter, Thomas McGuane.
