Salmon Fever by Ross Millichamp (2013) is a fully revised and updated edition.

“As every experienced salmon angler knows, there is much more to catching salmon than just chucking in some ironmongery and chancing it. Those who know their tackle, know their rivers and river mouths, and above all know the habits of their quarry, catch by far the most fish. Ross Millichamp is a field officer with Fish and Game North Canterbury, a position he has held for the past six years. Management of the salmon resource of the North Canterbury region is one of his principal areas of responsibility. Ross has been fishing for salmon since he was ten years old, and he attributes his success not to luck, but to knowledge and good planning. Now, in Salmon Fever, he shares the secrets of that success in a comprehensive and highly readable guide to every aspect of the sport of salmon fishing.

If you prefer to fish the surf or the gut, or you are an upriver angler, you will find useful advice on using different techniques and the latest in fishing tackle. The author covers lure fishing and bait fishing and includes an analysis of all the major South Island salmon fishing rivers – as well as some practical advice on preserving all those salmon you are going to catch by smoking, bottling or canning.

Extremely well written, with great full-colour photographs throughout, Salmon Fever is destined to become the bible for all salmon fishing enthusiasts, with practical advice that will benefit beginner and experienced angler alike.” Revised and Updated Edition 2013
