The River Stinchar

Words: Daibhidh Rothach
Anglers’ hopes perhaps run most intensely in the smallest of rivers. Or, more accurately, they run twofold: firstly, the hope that rain enough will fall to enliven the the pockets and seams of their little rivers, which seem to fade like a snowflake in the palm of a hand. Then, only should rain come, is permitted the luxury to hope for an Atlantic salmon. In Scotland’s south west, it is of rain that seasons are made, and the window of opportunity between a torrent laden with the sediment of intensive agriculture and a water low, languishing as the disheartened angler’s spirit, is narrow.

Reppafjordelva – Paradise Lost?

Words: Mikko Virranniemi

It is a river with its fish population under a great threat. The threat is greed, mixed with stupidity and shortsightedness. But more of that later. Let me tell you the basics first.

Mastering The Moments That Matter – Advice from the world’s top anglers (Part 1: Hooking, fighting, and landing Atlantic salmon)
