WEL­COME

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Top Game Fisheries 2019 - An­drew Fl­itcroft, Ed­i­tor

THE UK and Ire­land have some of the best fly-fish­ing in the world. Our rivers and still­wa­ters are steeped in an­gling his­tory with in­cred­i­ble catches of big brown trout and grayling, sparkling sil­ver salmon and elu­sive sea-trout. All are set within beau­ti­ful land­scapes. We have faced chal­lenges from reg­u­la­tion and de­clin­ing stocks in re­cent years, and will no doubt con­tinue to face them in the fu­ture, but the im­por­tance of an­glers to con­ser­va­tion and lo­cal economies can­not be over­stated. We must all re­mem­ber to ap­pre­ci­ate our an­gling riches whether we are cast­ing dry-flies to chalk­stream trout, drift­ing an Ir­ish lough, swing­ing flies for salmon on a Scot­tish river or hunt­ing Welsh seatrout in the depths of night. We hope that the fish­eries high­lighted in this book­let will pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion as you be­gin to plan your sport for 2019.
