    River Don 2021

    2019 was a slight “resurgence” but still not that great. This year has been better than last year, so far, but last year was terrible.

    Aberdeenshire Dee 2021

    There were a few fish at the pumphouse 1st week in August, the water went up at the end of that week and there hasn’t been a thing there since. Not sure what the boats are seeing.

    Aberdeenshire Dee 2021

    A fairly obvious and depressing sign that all the fish are in and have been for a while now I’m afraid.

    The Sentience Bill, salmon catch and release and Packham

    If it wasn’t for anglers the salmon would have disappeared long ago, so WTF is this all about?

    How was your spring?

    It has been exactly like that, on the NE of Scotland rivers, for the past 7 seasons. This season is looking no different.

    Don Pink Salmon

    They spawn in August and September, then the young hatch and go to sea around 2 months later. Maybe they thrive so well because they spend a lot less time in freshwater and are not then gobbled up by the FEBs!

    Pinkie caught on the Forth

    Was it not the Russians who introduced them to their north western rivers, then they spread to Scandinavia and so to our rivers?

    Classified Wanted Scam??

    I had the very same experience when I posted a message looking for a Scott Mackenzie 13ft perflex, he sent me his “friends” e mail address saying he had 1 for sale. I sent him a message asking how much etc, when he asked me to make a PayPal payment to his son’s account I smelt a rat and backed out.

    Advice on Sharpe's net sizes

    The 24” gye net is ideal for most, it is light and sits high on your back, so not a problem when wading deep. It’s also not too big that it gets caught in branches etc when fishing trickier spots. Landed fish up to 28lb with mine.
