    Droppers - love or loath them?

    Once upon a time many moons ago I wouldn't go salmon fishing without a dropper, I even recall one guy who would fish 3 flies at a time and didn't have any better success or lack off. I still use a dropper but not as often, I have stopped using them in low water, I have had a few incidences with...

    Another Scottish lockdown

    The most sensible post I have seen regarding travel and co19 in many months. Well said and I for one am in total agreement

    Upstream mend

    Downstream mend if any, the only time I would even consider an upstream mend is in cold water during spring or Autumn. Upstream Mending for summer grilse especially grinds my gears. Get pace in the fly and trigger that predatory response and get them up on their fins chasing the fly, or...

    Head injuries in sport

    Talking about head injuries, if it was not for the halo device on f1 cars god knows what would of happened to Romain Grosjean. Horrible accident. 😬 turned my stomach watching it live.

    Plans for 2021

    I have nothing against kipper bashing, done my fare share of it and still do, just no longer make plans for the autumn and book on short notice during September/october. what I am against is November nursery fishing 😋

    Plans for 2021

    Personally I'm hanging back a little on any plans, vaccine or no vaccine, this christmas relaxation and the logistics involved in distribution of the vaccine I fear 2021 will still be a odd year with covid-19 still having a little bite left. Spring fishing involving any travel I have binned...

    Strangest thing youve seen fishing?

    A cow swam past me once. On another occasion another angler went swimming off downstream, having said that he was in my favourite pool so he got what he deserved ?

    I remember a friend getting one out of that pot you mention, he fell in whilst playing it but managed to both get out and land the fish, I couldn't help as i was rolling about on the bridge in tears

    The thing that got me was that I could catch an overhanging tree on my own bank ? and still couldn't bloody retrieve the fly ?. You are right about pool na poach. It could do with being 20/30ft longer, useless in high water. Aggies bridge is another funny one, always feel I should get more from...

    Locked Down Tweed ?

    You do not have to hide the fact that you are trying to defend late season fishing on the upper tweed when it has its largest population of salmon.

    Locked Down Tweed ?

    I get where you are coming from. But a running fish often jumps in a certain fashion. On another point just because they are running does not mean they are not ready to spawn, and the fact that horsburgh has basically admitted that they have done their best to stay away from redds kind of says...

    Beat 1/ favourite would be Kinloch bridge,(preferably with good water ) Ferry is a funny one, I have had a few out of it but always feels like I should of had more, beat 1 is also my favourite beat. Beat 2/ long pool is my no#1 here with any of the last 3 pools in that gorge bit producing very...

    Alness end of season

    1 is the best high water beat for me, I have seen it from minus 4 to a barely able to fish 4ft flood over the past 20 years. Personally I think the beats have to many rods. Thats why the group I fish with book 2 whole beats for 6 rods fishing to give a little wiggle room.
