    Scottish Cricket

    Is anyone else following the T20 preliminaries? Scotland beat Bangladesh a couple of days back, today they are about to beat Papua New Guinea and on Thursady are playing Oman. They should get through to the final 12 when they will be facing the big guns ... England, India, S Africa and more.

    Lionel Main - Castle Grant

    Many of you will have fished Castle Grant on one of the three beats and will have know Lionel either directly or by reputation.

    An often overlooked beat that is at the lower end price wise. I like it for the easy wading and tranquillity as well as being remote and with no canoeists. So far this week it has seen 30 Sea Trout taken including 10 today. July is probably the best Sea Trout month there and there is...

    One from the Spey
