    Fish where there is most fish and you are 90% there to becoming a successful angler.

    Is this a repeat of a previous series?

    From the Alba 'Today' listing on the web:

    "Neen MacKay explores the world of salmon and fly fishing in Scotland. In this episode, Neen is in the Hebrides, where unspoiled salmon systems offer some of the most exciting wild fishing in Europe. "

    In view of the large number of escapees and lice problems throughout the Western Isles I cannot but wonder if the BBC is in breach of some law or other in making the claim highlighted in red!?

    Now that I have seen it all I can say is; Well...talk about a programme financed by the Industry and the BBC's duty to fearlessly report the truth!!

    But it was good to see that Donnie has not lost his touch!

    Nice to see Jason Laing again, 14 years since we were at Grimestra, incredible place. Was really disappointed about the way they spoke of the impact of Salmon farms, very poor show

    Interesting program as it always has been, but a total cop out on the salmon farming issue. Can't say I'm surprised, but still disappointed.

    My best memory of Jason was one day we were in the roving boat on Loch One. Jason had the Chairman in his boat and both boats were hard on the imaginary line dividing the two beats. A few exchanges each telling the other to go somewhere else were heard at high volume. I lit a cigarette only to hear Jason's voice yelling:

    "Mr C, this is a no-smoking loch!" It was far funnier at the time than it appears to be in the written word. It is a place I dearly love and the general decline is a very sad matter. I stopped going in 2012 and even then caught more escapees than wild salmon. 2 escapes to one wild fish!
