I've been a salmon angler since 1983 and have been lucky to fish such rivers as the Eden Welsh Dee Lune and Tweed.I always wonder at the miracle of this fine fish and wish more people understood it.I caught and returned a fish this year from the Tweed and saw running fish on Friday 7th on the Eden.Nothing was caught but there was the compensation of seeing an otter and barn owl.I am very conscious of the challenges facing salmon .
Salmon should only be available for sport purposes, no netting at all, fly only and catch and release (likewise Sea Trout). Salmon farming should be inland only. Predatory birds (and some animals) controlled, Polluters properly fined. I do hope this this Project will be successful, we can't depend on the EA !!!!
