On the Cains is a historical look and current guide to the Cains River and its fisheries for Atlantic salmon and sea run brook trout. Chapters include information on the geology and biology of the river, the history of angling and outfitting, a list of the known pools and lodges along the river as well as the guides who managed them, current angling information including tackle and techniques, and a pictorial list of the most popular flies selected by a long list of successful Cains River anglers.
This hard cover, beautifully dust-jacketed, 232 page, 8 1/2 x 11 format book is packed with approximately 400 photos and illustrations including a good number of drone photographs that capture some very out of the way pools.
Well known Forbes magazine writher Monte Burke said that:
“Brad Burns has written a beautiful tribute to a magnificent river and its undaunted inhabitants. This is an instant classic that will be fawned over a century from now.”
–Monte Burke, author of Saban: The Making of a Coach and Sowbelly: The Obsessive Quest for the World Record Bass.
Note this book will not be available until some time in March. This particular copy, though, will be labeled as #1, will have a John Rice Remarque of a Cains River Atlantic salmon, and will be signed to the winning bidder by both Brad Burns and John Rice.
