The second stage of a unique, visual feast will be coming to your screens as the stunning ‘Turas a’ Bhradain’ series returns to BBC ALBA. From STV Productions, ‘Turas a’ Bhradain’ ‘The Salmon’s Journey’ takes viewers on an exhilarating journey, discovering the best salmon fishing rivers in Scotland.

Presenter Neen Mackay will focus this time on the best summer spate rivers, against the magnificent backdrop of the west coast and the Western Isles. The angling series has to date explored spring salmon fishing, in a hugely successful first series. Neen’s odyssey now continues with instruction along the way from some of Scotland’s top fly casters, including former world champion Scott Mackenzie.

New, internationally influenced fly patterns will be revealed with fly tying demonstrations, as well as fascinating underwater filming. Neen will experience the flies being put through their paces as salmon are caught, and released. Conservation is very much the watch word today, and ‘catch and release’ in some shape or form is encouraged on almost every salmon river in Scotland.

There is also a very strong environmental focus throughout the programmes. The salmon’s life cycle is looked at in depth as Neen meets top scientists developing groundbreaking methods of regenerating stocks, and reveals the cutting edge research being carried out which indicates major threats to the species.

From the great loch and river systems like the Forsa and Grimersta on the Isle of Lewis, Amhuinnsuidhe on Isle of Harris to the Lochay, the Orchy, the Inver and the Kirkaig on the mainland, ‘Turas a’ Bhradain’ takes viewers on a mesmerising journey through some of the most breathtaking scenery in Western Europe.

As summer and autumn salmon are generally more plentiful than spring fish, this series also captures the sight of the majestic Scottish sea creature, in frequent close-up. The beautifully crafted programmes have also examined some of Scotland’s greatest historical salmon fishing stories, and will celebrate more in this latest strand.

‘Turas a’ Bhradain’ ‘The Salmon’s Journey’ is produced and directed by Chris Webster, and written by John Carmichael. Patsi Mackenzie is Executive Producer for STV Productions.

The six part series will be broadcast every Tuesday from 18th May at 8.30pm on BBC ALBA Satellite Channel 168.
