    The Panel should have included more experienced anglers and gillies with knowledge of salmon angling at home and abroad. They should have taken evidence from Scottish and overseas river owners and managers who have succeeded in considerably increasing the return of salmon.

    I have given up fishing the Spey, due to the probability that there will be no salmon to be seen.

    The Scottish Government should accept that the salmon angler generates more Scottish revenue per person than any other visitor.
    Anglers will take their custom overseas where they are likely to catch at least one salmon per day , rather than less than one salmon in a week’s fishing.
