Love the Spey. Hope to come back
Have taken lots of photos so will post more here in due course.
Anyway it’s obviously fantastic to visit a new river and have some success but most of all thanks to my comrades in arms of Laggan House for a thoroughly enjoyable 3 days – Vivian, Kay + Mr Welham, (your oysters tonight were magnificent) and Christopher: many thanks.
Thanks to Cathy who emailed me the above photo she took of me fishing Carron pool. Am I posing? It’s perfectly possible. More follows:
The trusty silver bullet at the Carron Bridge hut. Why photograph a hire car? Who knows, we fishermen are an odd bunch at times but it seemed ‘of the moment’ – and after all it was a good little motor which took me on the 1100 mile round trip..
Meanwhile here are some images of a great mini break with a very good day 1 haul.
Fishing down Carron Pool – also called Gas by our bank – with Delchapel in the distance.
Near the same spot, taken on a pre-breakfast walk earlier that day from Laggan House – the lupins in full bloom (ok Sandy?!)
Host Christopher makes a cast with his light blue Carron line which did the job nicely (see picture below).
My first-ever Spey salmon swims steadily out into the main flow of the Spey after I released it.
