  1. Robert Thomas says:

    Alex Salmond has, through his support of the salmon farming industry, done more to destroy Scotlands wild salmon stocks than almost anybody else. He cannot possibly be the right person to open the season on the Tay !!

  2. Kelvin whitfield says:

    Completely agree with the above comment….total hypocrisy and hey, guess what he’ll turn it into a vote for independence bash…….it beggars belief that the organisers of this wonderful yearly event in the game fishing season should invite the one individual who has damaged Scotlands salmon and Sea Trout runs more than anyone. You should be ashamed of yourselves and am disappointed with Fishpal giving it support….very disheartening.

  3. george renwick says:

    i would have to second that ,it seems to be a slap in the face for all the rivers in the west coast .

  4. Mr Stuart Waddell says:

    I would not trust Alex Salmon to look after my pet goldfish ! He should not be opening the Tay season, as his politics/policies have been detrimental to the well being of all Scotland’s wild salmon stocks. Not a man to be trusted, in my humble opinion

  5. Alasdair says:

    I am delighted and very proud to hear that Alex Salmond, First Minister is opening the 2014 Tay Salmon Season

  6. JimBoyd says:

    What a complete and utter joke this is BUT once Eck sees the amount of dissent this is going to cause then we will find ‘another more pressing engagement’ will have cropped up on that particular date.

  7. Helen Ritchie says:

    agree with all above comments, it’s a disgrace!

  8. Gordon Manuel says:

    Scandalous that Alex Salmond has been asked to attend the opening, sure to be the jinx that will continue throughout the season! We are requested to return fish to aid conservation of stock & he allows the nets to extend their season & even give grants, does this mean he’s contemplating giving grants to anglers who pay for fishing but get to keep very few fish? I suppose his shadow will be in attendance for what will be another “Freebee” !

  9. Alex Stewart says:

    Leaving all the various points for and against politics involved in angling, the only priority is ensuring all fish stocks are conserved for our children and their children.
    Unfortunately with all sports the Law has become involved through many reasons but it must be managed properly and where required common sense should pervail.
    All who have the future of angling, in whatever branch must join together and make our views known. It is those of us who argue from the sharp end who should be listened to and not those hidden faces behind desks who form the clauses for debate and would not know one end of a fish from the other.
    I hope the forth coming review of fishing management takes heed of those who fish and those and those who allow access to this wonderful sport.

    Alex Stewart
