Salmon Fishing in the Yemen – Paul Torday

gmLUGXiLIOMCIf you’re in the mood for some romantic fiction, this could be the option you’re looking for. A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realise a sheik’s vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the inhospitable desert. Together, they embark on a “journey of faith and fish” to make the sheik’s dream a reality.
Following its publication in 2011, the book quickly reached ‘must-read’ status and was adapted into a Hollywood film starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. It is an uplifting story, set in an unlikely location, but it’s definitely a book that’ll move you. Of course, the main reason we like it is because the visionary sheik believes he can improve and enrich the lives of his people through fly fishing. What honest-to-goodness angler can argue with that logic?!
