    This one sat right where you see it for 1 hour and ten minutes before it left. He or she had a squirrel pinned in one of the spruce trees but..... Eventually the squirrel approached and gave the owl hell for sitting there. I felt sure the fur would fly but Squirrel was allowed to run down...

    I know things are still early days, and conditions not exactly been good. But the catches are way way down, and reports form mates on the river, are fish are scarce. Are we seing the result of storm Francs destruction ? Jan 1016 puts us in line for poor returns on 2sw fish. Lets hope not. At...

    So what will 2020 bring us in the salmon fishing world, any predictions? All doom and gloom again or any glimmers of hope? By some strange twist of fate I've found myself in the Far North where nearly everything appears to be pretty rosy compared to the rest of the UK. One worry is if we will...

I have just read an interesting article by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust on smolts from the river Frome. Instead of just counting the smolts, they measured the length and have now shown that only 2% of...

    Well on 20th May, an agreement was made by the netsmen, from Greenland and the Faeros, to stop netting for 12 years. From what I heard they have been bought out by USA. This can only be good news, and hopefully we will see a few more fish return. I just wonder though, if this will cause us to...

    I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a discussion a friend and I had yesterday. I understood that since escaped farmed salmon were non-native to a river system they ascend, that under no circumstances should they be returned alive to the water and allowed to interbreed. I actually thought...

    I have just settled down to checking and preparing my catch return for this season, for forwarding to the EA, for the year 2017 . I havn't fished since August, but I always quite enjoy checking my EA return sheet (which I fill in on the same night of each successful visit), against my own...
