Sir William Jardine, the 7th Baronet of Jardine Hall near Lockerbie, Scotland, was the leading authority on salmon and trout in the British Isles. Jardine's estates were located in the fertile fishing areas near the rivers Annan and Tweed, placing him in a perfect position geographically to explore his fascination with salmon and trout. His independent research, and artistic inclinations, culminated in the finest and most comprehensive monograph on these fish ever produced in the British Isles, and perhaps in the world, British Salmonidae.
