    Default nith photos from friday

    heres a couple of pictures from the nith on friday.
    fished with doonrod and another good friend
    baltic cold
    setting up

    the cairn mouth could have done with at least another 18" on it.it was stuffed with fish
    the cairn stream

    best cast of the day was the purls,a near perfect height for fishing the fly

    looking up the purls to the cant and the college
    we never touched a fish apart from doonrod getting a wee pull.
    saw 3 caught all on the worm,one was spanking fresh.
    the river was stuffed with fish mostly coloured with a sprinkling of clean fish
    a cold but enjoyable day

    Excellent Longchuck - looks like some decent water. Thanks for posting up the photos.

    Interesting that you say the river was stuffed with fish down there, just goes to show what a difference a few miles can make as Mid Nithsdale has had very few fish about it since the river fell in.
    A man's a man for a' that.

    Perhaps they dropped back in the colder water WP

    Mate I have actually lost a bit of weight recently (another story )

    I had 6 layers on underneath that jacket good job I had bought it from Tony ( Argyll Toby R.I.P) and it was a wee bit stretched, dont tell the big man a said that either ha ha .

    I see in yin of those pictures a fine end to another fine spey cast by myself ha ha .

    They'd have to have dropped back 14 miles. When I think about it the pools Longchuck mentioned are below the Cairn so maybe there was a build up of fish waiting for a bit of fresh on the cairn.

    Or they are fish that have just come in over the last week and are again waiting on more water to push further upstream.

    one of the fish we seen caught was straight of the tide spanking frash
    the other 2 were coloured
    saw a few spanking clean fish
    as WP said a lot will be fish waiting to run the cairn
