Just back from a few days on the Tay at Lower Kinnaird with some great friends, Thursday was pouring rain all day with really low pressure, Friday we started with a big water but it dropped quick, I managed a couple of fish, one on my second cast of the morning and the next on my first cast of the afternoon. The group had another three with a few lost, not great but very enjoyable.

Did all the fish caught come from the Guay pool btw?
It's a beautiful pool to fish and I presume it's stuffed with fish.

Most from Ash Tree, only one from Guay, wasn’t that many fish around, it was pretty quiet, every so often a wee pod would push through and stir things up.

Some great fish there, well done. That fly looks like a fish magnet, touch of a Junction Shrimp at the bottom end maybe, does it have a name?

‘Lucky’ ?. Looks a bit kitchen sinky or oyster catcher? It’s very nice and will be copied!

Great beat and well done on the fish :cool: ? ,I have many great memories on Kinnaird ,I spent my childhood fishing that beat and caught a lot of fish from it ,my grandad was ghillie on there for well over 30 years .Seen many fish over 30lb and a good few over 40lb caught on Kinnaird it's a shame they took the croys out on the top half of the beat as it buggered the juction and the ferry stream.

The meetings have changed again, there is far less depth in it, we hardly saw a fish in the top half of the beat, I can’t recall any of us ever catching a fish in the junction, shame as it’s a lovely pool to fish

There used to be 4 large croys down the right bank which they took out to make it better for fly fishing:confused:which ruined the juction and ferry stream,I know there are not as many salmon around nowadays,but the juction and the ferry stream used to hold some amout of fish and with taking the croys out it slowed the river down and it graveled up.The croys were taken out to make it better for fly fishing,but you could have still fished the fly when the croys were there ..shame ,but glad you and your party had some fish, braw
