More from the Nith Young Anglers who we published an article on yesterday.
They are showcasing the work they have been doing and putting out a plea for some equipment.

Some captures have also been reported in some salmon net fisheries in Scotland and both rod and net fisheries in England and Ireland. These fish are not native to Scotland and are likely to have ‘strayed’ from some of the rivers in northern Norway or Russia. Continue reading
