A message from our Managing Director

Dear Angler,

FishPal's Managing Director Iain Wood. The salmon was safely returned

While some salmon rivers close at the end of September, many fish on into October and some, like Tweed & Nith, continue until the end of November. Reports from our fishpal site suggest that many anglers have enjoyed some wonderful sport, far and wide, despite low river levels experienced during the season across the UK and Europe

Scottish fishing is still enjoying a remarkable season with reports on the FishPal site showing catches of salmon increasing from last year and above the 5 year average on some rivers. The River Tyne in North East England has seen excellent runs of fish with record counts entering the system. Iceland reports increased catches too, compared to last year. Including their biggest salmon this season measuring 110cm and weighing 13kg (28lbs).

We have a host of new fisheries poised to go live on the system over the coming months. The addition of guides, instructors and tackle hire will provide anglers the opportunity to book almost all they need at once.

Don’t forget with Christmas just round the corner our personalised gift vouchers are a great option for anglers of all ages.


Iain Wood

  1. Please accept some feedback.

    There is much evidence about how lifting salmon out of the water damages internal organs and reduces the likelihood of successful spawning after release. Perpetuating the trend for a ‘selfie’ by using them on your pages does nothing for improving fish stocks. This seems very short sighted on your behalf.

    There are many National and International salmon conservation bodies who advocate good fish handling and have material on how it should be done.
    Surely FishPal should be at the forefront of fish preservation, not part of the problem.
    Poor form FishPal.
