New Book – James Gilbraith – Hooked on Hope

By Pete Tyjas on 28th November 2019


We’re excited to let you know that Fly Culture contributor has a new book published called Hooked on Hope.

Emancipated from the drudgery of nine-to-five and buoyed by the flexibility of self-employment, Boo resolves to take his newfound freedom and use it to navigate the predictably unpredictable waters of the River Ribble, where success comes to only the most committed of anglers. Flanked by a colourful cast of characters, not least the eccentric and excitable Lamont, Boo enters the fishing season feeling a sense of optimism that comes with knowing that the reward is the journey rather than the destination, although he wouldn’t turn his nose up at a massive Ribble salmon.

The book is a follow-up to Terminal Chancer Silver Seasons Atlantic Salmon. As ever the book represents my journey through the season fishing for salmon and sea trout. Its not always easy, but its always entertaining. Hope, friendship and laughter are the threads through the book that join the characters together – expect humour, pathos, stupidity, music, passion, soul and a love supreme.
