Some breaking news that the Tweed Commissioners have taken the decision based on the catches so far this season that all salmon caught are to be returned. The reason being that there is considered to be to few spring fish entering the Tweed to populate the redds come spawning time.
This is a sad state of affairs for what is one of our premier Scottish salmon river. I tend to adopt the view that all wild fish salmon, sea trout, brown trout and grayling should all be returned whenever caught they are much to valuable an asset to be removed.
