Good stuff, that!

A couple of good mates, nice day, awesome hen-fish, happy dogs, maybe a wee dram or two, what else could you ask for?

Thanks for posting this. As an ex pat Brit. myself I remain grateful of course for the rich traditions of our sport, but am also grateful for the 'free to all' fishing that we have (mostly) here in N. America.

Historically salmon fishing in Europe was the preserve of the privileged and vestiges of this remain today. In the UK there is a separate fishing licence for 'migratory species' , salmon and sea trout of 82 pounds a year. For a coarse licence, for general fishing, also for stocked trout- 30 pounds. There is no fishing licence required in Scotland, I think.

Why two licences? presumably as they can afford to pay. The fishing is for wild fish.

Having subscribed to Trout & Salmon magazine (UK) for many years, I glean from it what little I know about the 'British Isles' slamon fishing scene. It remains , for the most part, the preserve of the wealthy and (dare I say it) the old class structure, although of course there are exceptions.

Nice scenery though..
