This is the story of Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist - for whom diary-notable events include the acquisition of a new electric toothbrush and getting his article on caddis fly larvae published in Trout and Salmon. Finding himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the Highlands of the Yemen, it is a project that will change his life and the course of British political history forever.
With a wickedly wonderful cast of characters - including a visionary Sheikh, a weaselly spin doctor, Fred's devilish wife and a few thousand transplanted salmon - SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN is a novel about hypocrisy and bureaucracy, dreams and deniability and the transforming power of faith and love.
