Wild Atlantic salmon numbers have fallen by 70% in just the last 35 years.
Sir David Attenborough
“The salmon is the king of fish. Their journeys up rivers are some of the most thrilling spectacles in the natural world. And yet, now, their very survival is at risk."
HRH The Prince of Wales
"This incredibly valuable species is an aquatic canary for wider environmental change. The song that it is singing tells us a great deal about the state of our freshwater and marine environments and the need to behave responsibly to look after our natural resources."

“A touching tale of young love, discovery and adventure. Makes me wish I could take up fishing”Paul Whitehouse
Life is confusing for Aberdeen teenager Callum Anderson as he drifts through the lockdown summer of 2020. With exams cancelled and activities restricted, the aimless days and late, drunken nights all merge. When Callum’s behaviour puts the family dog at risk, his mother compels him to do something more productive with his time, forcing him to join a fly-fishing course on the banks of the beautiful river Dee. Callum is soon absorbed by a new passion and finds himself drawn to someone he unexpectedly meets there. Igniting a bond with his grandfather in their pursuit of the king of fish, he discovers how life is connected and how a legacy can live on.
