Skiddaw from the Solway


Saw a 5lb sea trout. It jumped in the tail of the pool last night, hanging in the air, I could see the gunmetal flanks and, I fancied, black spots. Fresh.
So that’s given hope. Meanwhile we took the coast road to the Solway yesterday and the bump on the horizon above is Skiddaw.

Wee road trip!
Fishing bud Andrew N texted me yesterday. He’d invited me to join him at Birgham Dub next week but sadly I


cannae. Anyway Gillie there Wattie caught two salmon and four sea trout yesterday or the day before and Andrew assures me Tweed beats are catching lots more than is showing on Fish pal just now so nice to hear.


Meanwhile rain tonight and winds to 42mph, happy days:D
