Well another week finished, the season is dragging itself to a close. The weather forecast for the coming week is for a settled week with some rain on Thursday night, which might liven the river up towards the weekend. The tides are building all week but weather there are any more fish is questionable. Surely this season should quieten anyone calling for a season extension, the last thing I need is to have to write more weekly reports!
Catches: I am sure there were some. The Gordon Castle Beats made it into double figures. Delfur managed about half a dozen. Rory was kind enough to send me this picture of a hen fish Tom Mellon landed; when it first came in I thought someone had caught a carp!
At Rothes, Eric Wardle’s party finished in the mid teens with almost as many lost. Eric said they fished hard and it was nice to see the pools full of fish including a few decent sized ones.
The beat above finished with 5, Charles Harman sent me a couple of pictures. Kitty Campbell landed her first salmon but he was not around to get a photograph.
Up stream things were pretty quiet but most beats managed a couple of fish.
