    Default my first and only Salmon to date!

    some of you may have seen this on the old proboards site! But i thought i'd post it again anyway! My first ever Salmon, taken on the Ericht at Blairgowrie in the Summer of 2007. Not the biggest, but my first and a lovely fresh fish......... and taken on a home tied fly!

    Thats a bonny looking wee Grilse JM! Congrats on breaking your duck! It only gets better! What about the fly, is it your own pattern?

    yes its my own pattern.... it was supposed to be my interpretation of a micro tube, but its probably an inch long! It still worked though

    Its a copper tinsel body, yellow over orange bucktail, a couple of crystal hairs and jungle cock. I suppose its a bit like a copper bodied willie gunn without the black bucktail.

    Nothing better than catching your first fish on a home made fly..... and on something most people would think was too big for the time of year...... just shows you though!

    hello Ross,
    It's taken me a while to get back on...... i'd given up on the proboards site as it had turned into a mess with constant arguments and bickering, then just the other day i was told by Kercock and Kelliefly that it had moved and all was well......so here i am!

    Glad to be back... and that all looks to have improved, well done to whoever turfed all the idiots out....how did Martin manage to get in though???

    All the best,

    John.
