Fly Fishing People: Charlie Whelan on the Spey

“In a shallow run on the mighty River Spey in Scotland, an Atlantic salmon has taken my fly and is slaloming around rocks in an attempt to head back towards the sea. I am grateful for the power of my 15ft, Scott double-handed rod as I try to subdue what turns out to be a 9lb salmon, fresh off the tide.” Bob Sherwood goes salmon fishing with British politico Charlie Whelan on Scotland’s River Spey in London’s Financial Times.
