Ireland on the Fly – Nicholas Grubb on 60lbs salmon and tales of an age gone by


This week Daire & Tom speak to Nicholas Grubb who grew up in south Tipperary beside the Suir and the Tar and he tells them about the incredible catches of fish that were to be had growing up.

It’s a throwback to another age and his great grandfather Samuel also had a reported 62lber which would have been an Irish record but it was never measured or verified at the time.


Nicholas also previously wrote an article for Salmon Watch Ireland discussing some of the reasons why he thinks salmon numbers have plummeted since the 1960s which he discusses.
