The print edition of Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference appeared in 2006 and quickly sold out. A revised and updated edition is now available in two digital formats, pdf and for Kindle or Kindle apps.

Atlantic salmon angling is intimidating to some, challenging for most, and second-nature to a few. To help the first two groups, and entertain (perhaps intrigue) the last, Paul Marriner has distilled more than fifty years of experiences on some 150 publicly-accessible salmon rivers into Atlantic Salmon: A Fly Fishing Reference. Its 234 pages are richly illustrated with more than 300 images and illustrations. This new digital edition includes links to numerous useful sites.

Fly Fishing in Lakes and Ponds is an updated and revised edition of Stillwater Fly Fishing: Tools & Tactics  in a variety of eBook formats. It features fly fishing equipment, techniques and fly patterns to catch a variety of fish species in lakes and ponds. Richly illustrated with more than 180 photos (colour) and illustrations. Includes links to a variety of useful sites as well as scientific studies of trout diets and a bibliography of selected references. More than 55 effective fly patterns are described or linked to, 43 with large images.
