Jack Charlton explores the salmon rivers of the world, from the beats of the river Dee to Ringstead Grange where salmon fishermen pay as little as £10 a day.
He writes about his visit to Alaska where the keen angler has to compete with grizzly bears. He talks to people who run the sport and to those who excel at it, and writes about famous names and stories of the past.
He investigates some of the questions which intrigue anglers, such as why women hold the records for the biggest salmon catches, who are the best "ghillies" and why did the Queen Mother still wade up to her armpits in the River Dee in her eighties?
Present day problems like poaching are explored and the best ways to cook and eat salmon.
Jack Charlton, former Leeds and England footballer, is now the manager of Ireland's football team.
