Fisherman's forum: Contentions on trout and salmon
About this deal
Truth is though, that even when I started about 20 yrs ago when the runs of salmon and sea trout were out of this world, it was never an easy river to fish but so long as I know the fish are there, blanking for nights on end has never bothered me as I consider it my fault for not solving the puzzle. Wild salmon populations in both the Atlantic and Pacific basins have declined dramatically over the last century and many populations are at imminent risk of extinction. The World Salmon Forum (WSF) brings together a coalition of scientists, advocates, and foundations dedicated to sustaining wild salmon. WSF will challenge the way in which salmon are managed and investigate the science required to underpin effective management. The latest problem and major issue we have is the building of Hinkley Point power station om the Somerset coastline. It is my understanding that a majority of the salmon travelling to the Severn Wye and Usk make their way through these waters. The original planning application include sonar devices placed underwater to deter fish from the area, EDF , the builders of the nuclear power station are now seeking change the original planning application to remove the fish sonar as they no longer consider them necessary and are in discussions with the EA on getting permission to do this.

Salmon angler numbers are limited by the Committee to 35 but this year with a change in Club rules any spare rods left at the end of the Salmon Membership renewal window which is 10th February are going to be given over to coarse angling applicants. This shows the clout that coarse anglers have these days and I think it is very said state of affairs. Fly tying involves the ‘dressing’ of a fishing hook to create an artificial fly, which is then used by anglers at the end of a rod and line to catch fish. It’s a little-known part of Ireland’s heritage but many angling shops in Ireland in the late 1800s and early 1900s employed ‘fly dressers.’ Some were considered masters of their craft, thanks to their skills, creativity and the traditional methods that they used. Not sure that 'magazine' really does it justice, possibly better described as a collection of fly fishing short stories in a quality A4 book format?That's my copy of Fly Culture Magazine popped through the letter box this morning, I'm looking forward to sitting down with it. I rarely fish Barvas, but still do a bit on Garynahine. I spend more time out in the dead of night looking after fish on the island nowadays.

First of all after reading the June reports in the latest T&S I find it almost impossible to comprehend even with low water that a river like the Dovey had barely nothing to report in June A month that all over the U.K. would see fish well spread out by then and in the case of the Dovey the catches were too innumerable to mention anything less than three poundsA forum to discuss casting techniques and events. For the angler wishing to increase his distance and the tournament caster. gave it a couple of hours either side of high. not expecting much due to the ground swell but had bites on every cast from whiting and dogs. maybe other things too but that's what i landed.

If this keeps repeating year in and out then the majority of fishing is going to be lost as these dry years have a huge impact on the aquatic life that forms part of the food chain for many other creatures. If a person puts the time in and learns the craft of catching salmon by reading the river, learning about the way nature works and understanding about rises and falls in both river level and temperature then massive respect to them.I have no way of telling how many salmon anglers up and down the Wye are renewing their Salmon permits for 2023 but for Ross AC I do know and we are down by one third on numbers compared to last year. I'm just glad we don't have the same level of membership costs that some on the Wye have to contend with plus the now common," exclusive access to salmon fishing from March to mid June" for considerable sums of money, WOW! Speaking at the launch of the picture book to coincide with World Book Day on March 3 rd, the manager of the project, Shane O’Reilly of Inland Fisheries Ireland, said: “ This new book offers a unique glimpse into Ireland’s past, showcasing the detail and beauty of traditional Irish salmon flies and the wide range of materials and techniques used by Irish fly dressers at the time. Many of those fly dressers are now revered around the world for the quality of their craft, so this collection is of significant cultural importance too, and is now available for the next generation to discover.” For me the tyne or the Eden are the best "salmon" rivers in the UK. Soley based on the year round sport/reports etc.
