Re: Fishing for Atlantic Salmon
The mystique and traditions of fly fishing for Atlantic salmon are legendary, the rivers are breathtakingly gorgeous, and the fish are strong and beautiful. Years ago I had the good fortune to fish them in Iceland (caught 5) and Scotland (skunked). Probably made ten thousand casts and spent ten thousand dollars. I’m glad to have had the experience, and I’m worried about the survival of the fishery and the fish. But I prefer stripers, blues, albies, bonito, permit, tarpon and bonefish, all of which offer special challenges of their own and are far more accessible.
