Many fishermen will acknowledge that the brown trout (Salmo trutta) and the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) are the world’s most intriguing, beautiful and noble fish. Having evolved nearly fifty million years ago in the Eocene epoch, these two species are close genetic cousins and descendants that can be found in oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams across the entire world. The Brown Trout-Atlantic Salmon Nexus is a complete historical, scientific, artistic, culinary, and practical guide to understanding and appreciating these remarkable fish. Veteran author, guide, and adventurist Matthew Supinski first highlights the evolution and history of the brown trout, from its origins in Europe and the Eastern Hemisphere, to its first North American transplanting in 1883, to its spread across the globe. He then dives into the scientific and angling brilliance of the brown trout/Atlantic salmon lineage praising the two species’ remarkable adaptability and resilience. And finally, chapters on fly-fishing tactics, fly patterns, artistic appreciation, and culinary/foraging opportunities where they are found throughout the world, will give readers all the information they need to catch, admire and appreciate this magnificent piscatorial legacy. With more than 150 stunning photos, The Brown Trout-Atlantic Salmon Salmo Nexus is a must-have for every passionate fisherman, admirer, artist and culinary naturalist connoisseur to enjoy.

This informative writing originated during my chartering days, due to a large percentage of clients asking how to preserve and prepare their catch. I then obtained some information from the Michigan State University extension service on preserving the fish. After compiling that material, I consulted other charter captains and friends, for a variety of home recipes (mine included). With all of these put together, I now had something for my clients. In March 2012, I decided to publish this information in book form for the general public to enjoy.

This first 6 x 9" black-and-white print edition features over 70 ink sketches including each of the featured flies, presenting a diverse collection of 52 Super Flies: patterns that have earned hall-of-fame status. This collection is well-stocked with trout and steelhead flies that I tied as a novice professional in the mid-1960s, finished off with a few of the favorite salmon patterns proven effective in the last two decades. The waters I have fished across Oregon include Cascade lakes, many Willamette Valley streams, the Deschutes, Klamath, Williamson, Rogue, North Umpqua, most of the coastal rivers, and the ocean near Pacific City. These flies have been effective in the waters I've fished, but more importantly, they have produced dependably for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of anglers who fished these flies in rivers and lakes across the western US states, Alaska, British Columbia, the Great Lakes, South America, and New Zealand. My personal experience - plus hundreds of stories told by friends and fly shop customers, all confirm the staying power of these flies.With a foreword by Rich Youngers, highly respected tyer of Classic Atlantic Salmon, Spey, and Dee style flies; former owner of Creekside Fly Shop; Oregon FFF Fly Tyer of the Year (2006); and Professional Fly Fishing Guide, Salem, Oregon.This is a basic bench-side tying-guide, but not really a technical tying instruction manual. You'll probably have more fun plowing through the fishing stories and fishing tactics advice that are sprinkled about in each fly description.
