    Best remember any fresh fish you land the forum demands a scale sample, dna from the lucky rod, photo of the weigh scales, photo of a small child next to fish for comparison and the signature in blood of the ghillie who landed it.

    Hope you bag a stonker.

    Sadly nowt fresh landed yesterday.I had a baggot of around the 12_13 mark that looked and faught like this years model.my boat partner Angela had a kelt..
    One of my guests Robert hooked a fresh fish at the last minute from the linn bank.the line went slack and he thought it had got off,when he reeled in the fish was still there and took of down the rapids in to the beat below burnmouth.
    Conn the ghillie and Robert got in to the boat to follow the fish as they both thought it was a big fish.when they went out in the boat it was realised Conn had lifted the fuel tank out the boat,engine cut out and away down the rapids in to burn mouth went them and the boat.
    After a great battle and the fish close to the net they realised it was hooked in the tail and was around the 10lb mark and a spanking bar of silver.
    Sadly the fish made a final lunge when nearly netted and was off.
    Withno fuel tank they had to get a loan of one from geordie the burn mouth ghillie to get back up in to the taymount beat.
    For those that have not fished the linn pool before it is an extremely dangerous place to fish.90ft at its deepest point and the largest volume of water coming over a falls in Europe supposedly.
    Watching them trying to get up the rapids with a 5 horse 4 stroke Yamaha was a sight to behold.
    They made it safe and sound.
    Monty pythons springs to mind.
    As an afterthought a boat that wasn't tethered correct in the linn got loose and went down the rapids and hit one of the large boulders and was smashed to bits and lost.yesterdays scenario could have been much worse if not for the know how of the ghillie
