    unless i am wrong jack all the nets on the tweed have been bought out for good ,this is the first year this has happend ,this info comes from the rtc and i doubt they would make such statements if not true ,i am normally a cynic and not overly trusting of fishery boards but i do hold the management of the tweed in high regard .i am sure someone closer than me will set us straight !

    The tweed is one of the best managed rivers in Europe, a bit of netting will do no harm, there are in river nets now and always have been. Don't panic, I for one would happily buy a netted salmon from the tweed, but I'd much rather catch one of my own. Mixed stock netting is a different animal altogether, and salmon farming the very worst thing that has happened to salmon since UDN.

    Quote from the article, " ideally, we hope that commercial salmon - netting may be revived in the future" sounds worrying to me.

    the chap who said that is from a food heritage company and would have no say what so ever and the harbour fisheries say its not going to be commercial again

    How about putting all these heritage thingie into the museum and by number of sold tickets judge how many people actually want to see it.

    Maybe there could be a heritage Seal cull to match?
