International Year of the Salmon – Film

18 May

As you may know, 2019 has been designated (by NPAFC and NASCO) as International Year of the Salmon.

For this, the Salmon and Trout Conservation have made a film with Sir David Attenborough. S&TC have asked that this be shared as widely as possible, and particularly to non-anglers, so please do your bit and pass this on to your friends.

Attending EA Electro Fishing

18 Feb

At our recent meeting in Morpeth, Jon Shelley offered to pass on our interest in attending electro fishing on the Coquet to his colleague Phil Rippon, the Fisheries Technical Specialist.

We have yet to be advised of time and place, but expect this to happen sometime during the summer.

Could anyone who is interested in attending this please reply to the secretary at ?

We will then compile a list and liaise with Phil Rippon when further details are available.
