It was not just grilse – a big dark salmon grabbed Roddy’s fly after sight fishing on the last day then threw the hook. Also to R’s rod was some big trout action with a grilse sized brownie. No sh*t Sherlock! Well that’s what I heard. The flies that worked were orange shrimpey, black ‘n’ silver and a mini Cascade tube. Also useful was a yoga bead helping hand and I hope to write of this in a cultured new magazine in the autumn.
These are ideal conditions for this type of water and despite the Jonah in the boat I had great hopes.Sidney Spencer
