    I've been spotting posts where remarks about low water are showing up. Just saw another on Gary's post to TTOM thread and thought better to post here than hijack the fly thread. Remembering the past few seasons that your rivers suffered under low flow conditions I can only hope you see a turn...

    All, I, as am sure many of you, have a number of days booked during the 2020 season and amounts to a considerable amount of money! Having queried the way forward on some of these rivers there are a number who are very kindly going to roll over the days to 2021 and for this I am very grateful...
  4. North Atlantic Salmon Conservation
    Slightly lengthy piece in todays Herald. Mike A BROAD grin stretches across Robert White's face when I come in from the frost at the Catholes hut, a wooden cabin, perched on a dramatic bend on the river Tay. He had woken up to a clear sky. After weeks of Storm Ciara's dirt, wind and torrents, of...

    I wonder what damage has been done to some of the spawning grounds on some of the rivers that have been raging
  6. North Atlantic Salmon Conservation
    An extract from todays Herald. Not seen the lists for this years categories yet Mike ANGLERS will be banned from taking their catch home on more than 100 of Scotland's salmon rivers this year. Ten rivers or waterways have moved to the highest conservation status since last year, amid ongoing...

    A friend of mine has just sent me a link to a report of a meeting and discussion held recently at Pitlochry between Marine Scotland and someone most of us see as a pariah in his normal role as defender/advocate of all salmon aquaculture, Martin Jaffa. Please don't be put off by his name or what...

    900,000 hours of human sewage and rainwater flow into UK rivers every year - revealed I know it has been observed and recognised before, but if you watch this section of tonight's Channel 4's news, you can see the EA officials appearing to apologise on behalf of the water Industry (and doing...

    Hi folks can anyone recommend a line to suit a hardy zephrus 12'6" 7/8 ideally a short-head line would be great as the rivers am fishing are small to medium spate rivers.

    Below link to rivers open for salmon fishing in Ireland for 2020... Is closing rivers a better option than C&R and is C&R the answer? Letterkenny district... and the great Loughs Glen and Fern... Where the late Sydney Spencer... described Donegal 'majestic hidden,unspoilt gem of Irish...

    http://www.riverdee.org.uk/f/articles/DeeDSFB-Hatchery-Factheet-FINAL-15Nov2019.pdf So, after 3+ years of spending over £2+ million tagging smolts and funding the saturation promotion of a populist narrative, it appears that predators on salmon rivers remove 'lame fish'. Furthermore, by...

    I recently posted a new blog entry that recaps the fall fishing season on the Miramichi and Cains Rivers in New Brunswick, Canada. Here is the link. Frankly it was a long way from a great season for us. We are still suffering from an oversized population of striped bass that are eating a lot...

    I see that last Friday beat 2 had 28 fish which is quite a feat. There are not many rivers that can get even close to that and some charge far greater rents. Catches 16/08/2019

    Been suffering quite a bit on Ribble so far this season with a heavy "stain" or a Black look to the water and at times no inconsiderable amount of foam. Now to my eyes that's down to a heavy peat stain and I for one have never had a great deal of luck fishing under heavy peat stain conditions...
