    The Thurso is a river you really have to tune in to. A lot of Big 4 fishermen struggle with it, especially the long canal stretches on the likes of 13, 12, 7, 6, 3 and 2. However, I'll pass on the best bit of advice I was given by a regular rod which is in these stretches pay particular attention to where the river narrows and where there are reed beds (which should be fished from the opposite side). At that time of year, if it is windy treat them like long narrow lochs and have plenty of Muddlers and floatant with you.

    Looks like a normal Thurso day to me! There is a reason there are very few trees

    I would imagine it is very much like fishing the upper beats/slower pools on the Erriff, which I fished for many years.

    Will be a great challenge, whatever!
