The primary writer for the blog will be myself (Matt Newton), I am a PhD student through Glasgow University studying Environmental and Evolutionary Biology. My primary interest is in migration barriers and their impacts on Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar). I have fished ever since I can remember, and have fished at both National and International levels for the England Youth Fly-Fishing team competing at world championships in both the Czech Republic and Portugal.

What to expect from the blog!

In the not so distant future we will be sharing with you our fishing experiences from around the globe. We will be reporting back on the highs and lows of various fishing trips, fish we have caught and how we have gone about tackling them! The aim is for the blog to be interactive, for our followers to leave feedback, along with having topical discussions on subjects within the angling world.
