    Springer fishing February and March were among the options I considered but given the risk of weather and the fact that I get all of that I need here at home I deferred. Just read the news report of the storm Ciara pounding away at the UK and Northern Europe. Flooding along the Eden and many...

    The thread title says it all - where do Grilse feed ? I should know this, but dont. Do they get all the way to Greenland; if not where do they head to ? If so, from the size of some of the fish pictured recently, its a long way to go to put on just 4 or 5lbs in weight, during their winter at...

    I know they draw on the same run of fish but given the choice which would you target; thinking particularly of the Wye and Usk passport waters? I am to travel a bit more from my mid-south coast location to save a load of money and improve my chances and both these rivers are reasonably accessible.

    Is it possible to explain why all four of the big Scottish east coast salmon rivers experience both early and late runs of fresh salmon, while "across the pond" in Norway, fish don't seem to start to run until late April/May and finish in September. After the installation of video cameras, two...
