    I have been doing a lot of thinking recently about all the issues the salmon is facing at present and i would like to know what others thought regarding reversing this trend of low runs and loss of back end runs. Now i know many different posters blame different things for the poor runs but i...

    I’ve a 10 to 15 year old pflugger reel 9# Been superb but the drag has started playing up. It works fine and dandy for a while then just stops and the spool runs almost free like a trotting reel. Then , I t’s fine again for a bit etc Not great. Especially if a fish takes and it over runs and at...
  4. North Atlantic Salmon Conservation
    After reading a number of scientific papers, I'm at least convinced it's real enough. Obviously, if this trend continues, and I've seen nothing to suggest it won't. Warming Seas and Summer Heatwaves are going to have a serious effect on everyday life. Certainly, it's going to have an effect on...

    Hello everyone, Having fished all over the world, somehow its my first time fishing the Almond (Edinburgh, Cramond) this year despite having lived near enough on its banks for most of my life! Have been having great fun with the trout on dries, but wondered when the sea trout and salmon run...

    Spotted this in Old Rayne today, Bonnyton burn running orange. The burn runs into the river Urie , which in turn runs into the Don. This is not an isolated case as I witnessed this environmental vandalism many times over the years. Called SEPA straight away, usual waste of time of course. Next...

    Any info out there on the Arnisdale river that runs into Loch Hourn ? Or surrounding area. John

    Hi, We are in a place where I don't think climate change can really be challenged . The cause(s) of this phenomenon can, in my opinion, certainly be debated well into the small hours. I'd just like to throw open the possibility of reviewing open/closed seasons. Are we fishing at the wrong...

    Hi, Hope it’s alright to ask a question about Isle of Mann rivers in here. I tried a search but couldn’t find anything related. Does anyone have any experience about salmon fishing in the rivers on the Isle of Mann? Is there any worth while runs or is there any recommended fishing there? I...

    Just received the following from NZ Fish & Game. I know its not Atlantic Salmon, but the situation it describes mirrors all too well what we are finding in the UK Turning the Tide The salmon need you! Fish & Game is organising a two-day symposium, Turning the Tide, to discuss the South...

    As above. lots of fishers won't fish over Kippers and depending on how close to the spawning time, quite rightly too. However as the runs or some of the runs have entered rivers earlier that normal these will of course colour up within a few weeks. Now are these in a sense true Kippers that we...

    Just wondering how is the September salmon run shaping up around the country so far.....????? Any decent runs arriving yet.....
  14. Canadian Rivers
    Good News All; So far it is shaping up to be an excellent season this year in Newfoundland. A distinguished salmon biologist explained to me a simple method for predicting how big a run will be on a river in any given year. Obviously it is not bullet-proof but in my 20 years experience it has...
