Braewater on the Spey brought good water for fishing friend Christopher this month. Levels fell from 1’6″ to 4″ and in slightly coloured water a cast in Lower Dipple on Thursday with a size 6 Castle Killer brought this nice silver summer salmon. Christopher said “We averaged 3 fish a day all above 10 pounds and most in the high teens.”
Gillie Hugh Stevens holds Christopher’s fish.
Elsewhere, FFC friend Neville managed seven sea-trout and three salmon at Tillmouth, fishing with another club member and friend, Chris Lapsa, about three weeks ago. Neville observed they were “a bit early” but with Scotland’s most famous autumn river system you could say that all summer couldn’t you?
Dad and I head up to the Nith next week. No chance to Blog from the (campsite) Bog – because we’re staying in a hotel!
