Welcome to True or False Fishing Stories

'A glimpse of the past, when the Tay had truly huge fish! Characters and old friends really brought to life, with a real feeling of being a bystander watching it all happen.'


John Buckland "A Guide to Salmon Flies", co-authored with Arthur Oglesby


'I first knew of Jess Miller almost thirty years ago when I used to fish at Dunkeld House Hotel on the banks of the River Tay. Thirty years of fishing this river has given me wonderful excitement, frustration, laughter and a great many friends and memories. But my experience of this river was nothing compared to what Jess had, with his access to two miles of wonderful middle river fishing. To be able to read and listen to the tales of this fine and experienced angler, who cast into the same waters that I knew so well, gave me real pleasure and I heartily recommend this book and audio book to anyone with an interest in fishing and in particular fishing the mighty River Tay.'

'My imagination ran riot same as the singing reels in the stories. A difficult book to put down, great fun, very entertaining.'

Paul Zissler, lifetime salmon fisherman.
