    How do you treat your tackle on the bank?

    Great while you can, as Father Time creeps up you may have to change your mind, I have after a couple of unwanted swims😪

    Millcraig Gold

    They do work I’ve caught and the Usk And lower Beauly using my tying. It’s hard to get the browny gold colour of the upper wing, I’ve used a mixture of the gold brown from a yellow buck tail mixed with some dark banana arctic runner. Don’t think the salmon know the “correct“ tying.

    A spin on 'car for fishing'

    R Class Mercedes I drive a R500 long wheel base running on LPG. Equivalent of 40 mpg, 4 wd , airmatic suspension, ridiculous amount of room.

    Polarised glasses

    Another vote for Costa‘s particularly the Sunrise 580G. I have some Maui Jim copper which are good and light. Serengeti are also very good for driving.

    Above you, just below Chainbridge. not the best holding water but there’s always a chance. Never catch anything at home.

    Spencer, I was out today but did see a trout rising, small hatch of March browns, no salmon seen or touched. Nice to out. As you said very clear.
