Sal­mon fry galore

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - LETTERS -

I have just re­turned from three days fish­ing the Tyne at By­well – nor­mally a pro­lific beat, but the re­lent­lessly scorch­ing weather made it hard work and fish­less, de­spite the ster­ling ef­forts of Garry, the gillie. How­ever, one re­mark­able fea­ture was the vast shoals of sal­mon fry in the mar­gins of the river. There were thou­sands and thou­sands fol­low­ing you as you stirred up the mud. I un­der­stand that the Lune is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a sim­i­lar phe­nom­e­non, so could this have any­thing to do with the fact that both these rivers have a hatch­ery? I await a re­sponse from the EA or NRW! Steve Dal­laghan, Cl­wyd
