Scottish Parliament moves to protect early springers

This article has been read: 630 times.

Anglers will have noted that the Scottish Parliament has approved new laws governing annual close times and the conservation of spring salmon. Under these laws, anglers and netsmen must not kill salmon in the period before April 1. The annual netting season has been shortened and now runs from April 1 to August 26 inclusive.

The measures are designed to protect the currently low levels of spring salmon in Scotland. They will run for five years. It is important to note that all other voluntary conservation agreements on the Ness system remain unchanged. These include Inverness Angling Club’s Rule 5.1, which specifies that all salmon and grilse caught prior to June 1 must be released, regardless of condition.
