    Holding a fish for a picture.

    What's the thoughts of anglers holding their salmon for a supposedly quick photo before releasing? I've personally seen some howlers recently.... everything from selfies with the salmon ....picking them up by the tail....holding them as far away from the body as possible so it looks bigger...

    When the salmon aren't there.

    From a few years back . The salmon never turned up due to low water,as frustrating as it was I turned back to fishing for Brown Trout using the dry fly. I knew from past experience that my wee spate river could hold some good Brownies,but it was a skill I hadn't experienced for about 15...

    New wading boots.

    Met this chap today on his way to the river. Fantastic Idea with the DIY non slip wading boots. Add all the gadgets and accessories he looked like the complete salmon angler.

    How have the government handled Britain's workforce during the pandemic.

    Self employed or on the payroll I think the government have been quite generous considering all the muck ups they have made during this time. Of course some may think that they have failed with grants and furlough schemes. What's your thoughts on how the government have handled the country's...

    Lost days

    If there's something that really boils my liquid, it's losing a day on the river and not being offered a refund OR a day at a later date. I think if you live near the beat in question the least they can do (especially the Ghillies) is offer you another day when they are not let. This happened...

    In the drink

    Yesterday I took a dive (well slip) and ended up in the drink, about a good builders bucket of water down the back of my waders and a fairly uncomfortable rest of the day fishing. What I have noticed in the last few years as I get older is how unsteady and more cautious I've become whilst...

    Tweedbeats booking system.

    I really don't know if this is worth a thread starter, anyhow.... Looking through the availability on Tweedbeats there are let's available with the price of a day, then I go into October and look on certain beats with available rods but no price? Does this mean the price is negotiable ? Or are...

    What river is your unlucky one ?

    I've caught a fish (salmon) in just about every river I have fished apart from two. The Till and The Tay are the rivers I look at with less interest these days, I've had sea trout from both and I've had a few salmon from the Tummel but never one from the main mine is definitely the...
