Paul and I fished – and shared lodgings – at Middle Varzuga in June. That’s when I found out he is not only a good fisherman, but also a very good fly tyer.
He sent me this picture of an Annan belter he caught on Tuesday. He caught a 5lb grilse on Monday :
“What a shame you couldn’t fish this week! Home now after the motorway misery, but it was made more bearable after this beauty this afternoon!
“Two days, two fish and it’s not even on the wrong end of a chopper flight.”
