The Spey Fishery Board has decided to maintain the Salmon Conservation Policy introduced in 2003 for the 2004 season.

The policy encompasses three key elements,

3. FISHING EFFORT

Where possible the numbers of hours and rods fished should be limited.

Wester Elerchies reduced the pressure on the water and the fish by reducing the number of rods that fish the beat from 7 to 6. Then the time element was reduced to 12 hours /day. As you are aware, it is difficult to find 12 hours of day light in these short February days.

I sure Graham will back me up in saying that you could easily loose 7 anglers in any of the Wester Elerchies pools.
