Kickstarter Campaign to Fund Salmon Fisher's Journal

Joel La Follette - Wednesday, July 12, 2017




Over two decades in the making, Jay Nicholas’ master work will finally be released via funding from his Kickstarter campaign. The book, Salmon Fisher’s Journal, is unmistakably, quintessentially Nicholas. A deeply personal compilation of essays, imagery and art celebrating one angler's obsession with chinook salmon. It’s a book unlike anything else in the angling world  — spontaneous, unvarnished, the science, the history, salmon behavior, ethics, flies, tactics, long-winded fishing stories, brief journal entries — too much and not nearly enough.

This book illuminates aspects of a fishery pursued by fly anglers for nearly a century, but is barely hinted at in the fly fishing literature. Angler's Coast and Rivers of A Lost Coast offered an enticing glimpse into this fishery and men obsessed with fly rod chinook, but this book throws the door open in a manner rarely seen. Salmon Fisher’s Journal is an intricate story hard-wired to the chinook itself. Readers will learn much about fishing technique here, and even more about the author’s infatuation with the fish, his fellow anglers, and the fishery — all of these ring loud and clear in the narrative .

“This is THE book on salmon fishing with a fly. Salmon Fisher's Journal takes you deep inside one of the greatest angling minds of this or any generation. Will you catch more salmon (and steelhead) because you've read Jay Nicholas' book? Certainly. But that is hardly the point. Buy this book if, like me, you aspire to live, breathe, and dream the tidal forces of Pacific salmon.”

John Larison - angler, conservationist and author of Holding Lies, The Complete Steelheader and Northwest of Normal.
