    Sitting in the doctors waiting room picked up an old The Field magazine (June 2017). There was a Q&A section which talked of the fact that salmon and brown trout hybrids exist. Apparently River Tweed studies in the late 80's early 90's showed 4% -5% of juvenile fish to be trout/salmon hybrids...

    Was looking at the Thurso site and saw a picture of a sand bar below Loch More that the photographer said had a kelt swimming around on top of it. It reminded me of catching a kelt in late July in a place called Rattling Brook near the mouth of the Big River in Labrador. The kelt was in a...

    Slightly more left field, but it can have a late spring run and the ones that run are often of a very good size. Where might this be? Regards NHP
