    Newly Retired

    Welcome John. I retired 18 months or so from a stressful working environment and have to say it took me a year to acknowledge I really was retired and I didn’t need to get up at 5:45 every morning. It was strange but eventually I got used to it. I can now go fishing, hill walking, biking...

    The Big Fish That Got Away Stories

    Hard lines Alan. We don’t know or see a fraction of the fish running our rivers and to hook into something as obviously huge as that is memorable to say the least. More so when it got past the Pert boys lol!!

    Day to day fish for me is Haddock by a country mile, followed by the occasional treat of a fresh seatrout Then it’s Cod, proper smoked sea houses kippers and smoked Mackerel.

    The Big Fish That Got Away Stories

    Yes but I have never considered the Spey as a Big fish river. Not saying there isn’t big fish in it of course but I associate the Tay, Tweed, Awe and the Deveron with big fish captures over the years. All rivers are able to throw up the odd huge fish but generally most won’t on a regular basis...

    The Big Fish That Got Away Stories

    Well draw a soft chair over, grab a dram and gather round. My day began in late October about 4-5 years ago on the Cardrona beat and I started as usual in the Castlehaugh Cheek pool at the top of the beat and just below the pedestrian bridge that the golfers use to acces a few holes on the right...

    River Nith 2020

    You know Tom wouldn’t it be great if someone (you even with this big fish story) started a “ lost big fish” thread, as a welcome relief from the doom and gloom about the place currently Go for it big man as I too have a rather thrilling fight I’d like to remind my self of lol

    River Nith 2020

    Great story and felt I was a most there watching too. But aside from losing that big fish what is the rule to the situation you found yourself in. Can you follow down through another beat(s) should the fish decide to head back to sea? and the obvious next question is: what weight do you think...

    Cabin Fever

    Looking through the various “hot topics” it would seem cabin fever has set in earlier than normal! Just like the salmon runs I suppose.
