As ever a great few days, although quite frustrating! I had one on the Monday out of Hoch o B4, and then lost 2 on the Subnray on B2 on Tuesday. A couple of pulls/splashes on B5 on Wednesday.
Up to when I left, between the four of us we had 1 on Monday (B4), 2 on Tuesday (B2), 2 on Wednesday (11lb and 14lb on B5) and the guys (typically since I'd gone!) had 4 on B3 yesterday. No fresh fish, but some seen yesterday apparently.
Sounds like you had a nice few days anyway!

Sounds like you had a good day! Funnily enough I spoke with Peter (the ghillie) who was sharing B4 with you and he couldn't buy a take!! That's fishing I huess!
Be very interested to know what set up and flies you were fishing, as although we caught a few this week, we were never really sure whether we should be trying the sub=nrays, small flies, tubes, big flies, etc. and your local knowledghe would be appreciated for next year!

Floating line, Int tip and either the dog or a sunray on the business end.
Slow figure of eight retrieve as the fly comes over the likely spots.
All 4 fish taken towards the tail of the pool, the 2 lost also in the tail.
Saw more fish in the morning than the afternoon.
Upper Beat 4 seemed to be holding more, but that's just maybe as they were in a playful mood in the morning.
The Sunray and Dog that worked for me.
Like a Sunray with red underwing and red crystal flash on a needle tube.
A selection of my go to flies for low streamy water.

Well done Bex, if anyone can winkle out a fish or 2 it's you. Will speak to you soon about next year, planning on some days on the Findhorn.

I'm there next week and can't wait. I'll be casting left handed due to an injury but otherwise what could be better? The most beautiful river in Scotland? I think so.
