Nice to see eight fish caught so far at Tweed beat Sprouston this week including two 20-pounders in the last 36 hours.
Also, 100 miles to the west, two cracking spring fish of 19lb and 23lb from the same lie by John Cameron from the Riding Stone pool at Friars Carse on the River Nith. John, a regular on the beat, was fishing a Willie Gunn fly.
Things are surely looking up, even if it’s 6 degrees outside in Cambridgeshire and we’ve had more rain than I can ever remember in the first quarter of the year.
Sadly I was unable to fish my week on the Nith this week but gave the honour to our fishings secretary, Geoff. Hoping he will get down on the beat to give it a try. (That being an appropriate term for a former policeman.)
