Chris McCully


Wild trout ­Well, it's usually been fun but after fifteen years this website is going to go off-line in autumn (October) 2020. Many thanks to those who have read and taken an interest. You'll encounter listings of and some links to Chris's work in the following pages. There is more work to come - several book-length projects have been completed in 2020 - but after October you'll find the new stuff in different fora and contexts. Thanks again.


Academic work and other prose
All Chris's books - a chronological list

"'If you collect together all the words that have ever been written about sea-trout in Ireland, and put them together between the same set of covers, the result will be a pale shadow of the tome that McCully and Whelan have delivered, which is not so much impossible to put down, as difficult to pick up, there is so much of it. The 480 pages cover every trickle that once smelt a white trout and in the process you get treated to more insider knowledge and more good advice and more stories than any reader has a right to wish. Truly, they do not write books like this any more, almost certainly because you don't come across such stellar combinations of writers more than once in an epoch.' " - about Nomads of the Tides (2013). Andrew Herd in Waterlog, Winter 2014.
