Terminal Chancer

  Terminal Chancer Silver Seasons Atlantic Salmon – Is a book about fishing, passion, humour, optimism, hope, outsiders, antiheros and breaking out of the eternal grind.

Shrimp-head balaclavas. An unlikely mix, but Gilbraith’s Terminal Chancer is an unlikely book. It is rare for authors to mention, as Gilbraith’s does in the book’s early pages, that they have self-published the item you hold in your hands because two publishers have turned it down. Upon finishing, I can see why they did; I can also see that they missed a trick. Terminal Chancer is an unusual memoir and an idiosyncratic joy. Gilbraith is a salmon man, devoted to fishing for the rare runs of fish on …
