Description

An extraordinary, beguiling bestselling tale of fly-fishing and political spinning, of unexpected heroism and late-blooming love...

This is the story of Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist - for whom diary-notable events include the acquisition of a new electric toothbrush and getting his article on caddis fly larvae published in 'Trout and Salmon' - who finds himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the Highlands of the Yemen - a project that will change his life, and the course of British political history for ever.

With a wickedly wonderful cast of characters - including a visionary Sheikh, a weasely spin doctor, Fred's devilish wife and a few thousand transplanted salmon - SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN is a novel about hypocrisy and bureaucracy, dreams and deniability, and the transforming power of faith and love.

Customer Reviews

Awful

One of the worst books ever. Written in the style of a government report and about as enjoyable to read.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

More interesting than the title might suggest, but somewhat unbelievable in the end. A good variety of styles keeps the story moving and some good observations on the fickleness of political and business support. Slightly Dilbertesque at times, I think I'd describe it as black humour. Kept me hooked but I didn't really engage with the characters.

Captivating

A very enjoyable read, engrossing from the start. Sad ending though...
