    Disillusioned From Stirling

    2010 was a particularly good year for us, it was unbelievable how many salmon were holding in the bottom river, it all seemed to unexpectedly end after a good 2013 season, one would think a hole had opened up in the sea and swallowed up the whole autumn run, so disappointing but in line with...

    Disillusioned From Stirling

    I cannot imagine the one and only ADH being too chuffed at that post!!

    The runs have completely changed, best bet forget November altogether, whatever the price, look more to may-june, and july

    Is it worth booking February fishing?

    I agree with the secound bit but the first "stab" at me ? You couldn't get further from the truth?? A post of mine a couple of months ago showed a pic of a unusual tweed salmon? A 29.5 lb fish? Basically my personal hate is obviously over sized guestermated salmon ! The sort thats common on...

    Who's Happy with Brexit Now ?

    Yes, but their leaders all fall into the same category? "Champagne socialists" all with their own tax evasion fiddles, and massive personal wealth!

    Who's Happy with Brexit Now ?

    We now live in a lazy and obese society, where as so called job seekers cherry pick what jobs the would consider taking, so the alternative is foreign labour who will do this menial work mainly because in their country, the alternatives are not quite as rosey?

    Who's Happy with Brexit Now ?

    Fruit pickers, hgv drivers, bar/hotel skivies, cleaners, etc, their brickies are slow and ****, there were about 6 on a job i was on, the boss man claimed they were great, on the job by 7 he boasted! I got my eye on them! The boss was really only a translator, 2 (were proper brickies) the rest...

    A few Thurso salmon…

    Basically yes! Thats if you pick the last week of the season! Its equivalent to the old last week in November on the upper tweed the old "kipper bashing" week, there used to be a certain criteria that cherry picked that week season after season! Numbers more important than condition
