For this Ireland on the Fly podcast Noel Carr joins Daire Whelan to discuss this year’s salmon runs…
It’s been the strangest of summers what with the pandemic, lockdowns, and now reports that the salmon runs have been the best in years. Was it because the rivers and lakes had been rested earlier in the year and do we need to preach caution that one swallow does not a summer make and that the decline in salmon stocks is still terminal?
Noel Carr, National Secretary with FISSTA, the Federation of Irish Salmon and Sea Trout Anglers, joins Daire Whelan on this week’s episode of the Ireland on the Fly podcast to discuss green shoots from the summer runs – which he describes as the most hopeful time for salmon in Ireland since 2007 – whilst also outlining the more deep-seated problems and threats that still exist in the fight for our wild salmon.
