Restoring the Salmon to the River Liffey

Restoring the Salmon to the River Liffey

Mark McAndrew casts a line on the River Liffey

There’s no two ways about it, but 2023 has been a tough year for salmon anglers. 

Between trying to deal with extremes of wet and heat, and then when conditions did come good, the numbers of fish arriving were far below expectations.

It’s easy to blame climate change and what’s going on out in the oceans, but what about some of the impactful actions we can take closer to home and what kind of positive effects can it have?

Conor Arnold previously told us about increased salmon numbers in the Baltic, so, can anything be done here in Ireland?

Mark McAndrew is a passionate fly angler and conservationist who, in his own time, has decided to see what he can do and how he can help through the Liffey Salmon project and he joins us on this week’s Ireland on the Fly to discuss the attempts to restore the salmon back to the River Liffey.
