About the Book
The Dalguise Fishing Beat stands on the mighty River Tay, Perthshire in Scotland, one of the greatest salmon fly fishing rivers in the world.
The photographer, James Finlay, an avid fly fisherman himself, provides us an intimate and nostalgic documentation of the Dalguise Beat, a fishing beat that inspired Beatrix Potter during her days at Dalguise creating Peter Rabbit, and inspires people today who visit to fly fish.
James Finlay provides us with photographic images that capture the details, patterns and graphic form of the landscape before us to enrich our knowledge and views of the world around us. His work allows the eye to rest on the rich textures present in nature and tells stories of time passing...perfectly distilled moments of simple beauty. James' work has taken him to the vast landscapes of the High Arctic on the Arctic Ocean, the Scottish Highlands, the midwest of the USA, Lord's Cricket Ground, Henley Royal Regatta to the city architecture of London and Chicago with exhibitions and published images in London, Scotland and the USA. His work is described by critics as; "some of the most powerful and poetic landscape photography seen and somehow the photographs capture a really strong sense of nostalgia.
