Under way at Closeburn Castle


Burn Pool in October last year.

I was pleased to hear today from our secretary Geoffrey Walter up at Closeburn on the Nith that the first springer of the 2015 season has been caught and released from our Burn Pool on fly.

The fish, a fresh-run eight-pounder, was caught by Mike Hirst two weeks ago on a ‘not particularly nice day, overcast and showery’.

Sadly I have been only twice in the last decade during my April week and it will

be difficult to get up again this time – but Geoffrey has once again accepted my invitation to fish so tight lines to him on St George’s Day and thereabouts. There could be fish about as I’ve heard the Galloway rivers have enjoyed a bit of a spring run with 15 or so off the Cree (can anyone confirm this?)
