    Yellow warning of snow

    Very windy weather with gusts to 70 mph or more may affect the far northwest and north of Scotland overnight. After a brief lull winds will increase during Wednesday afternoon and evening, accompanied by increasingly wintry showers. By evening several cm of snow will begin to accumulate away from western coasts, especially over higher ground. In combination with gale force winds, gusting up to 65 mph near showers, travel conditions will start to turn very tricky, resulting in longer travel travel times.

    I will be surprised if any fishing gets done at all in these conditions. For those of you who do not know the area, it can be brutal up there. Better back in the Hotel with a large dram sitting in front of the fire telling fishing lies to each other.

    Also the rising water might not be helping. At least we've got all next week too.

    Fished it hard all day today, and yes it was brutal. Lifting and casting a 16 foot t20 tip in the wind on an 11 weight- not a day for finesse.
    Sleet and driving rain almost all day but:-
    - everyone I met was smiling
    - or having a lark
    - or happy to chew the fat
    - saw some stags and deer on the ridge and close by the river
    This is a very special place, on it like a bonnet again tomorrow

    Was it yourself JJ that my father in law met. Talking about the dove?
