Well the westie and the southie still on their bones mate hopefully that big dump of rain today is still to register. Thought I might of seen you the morn too.Despite the Aberdeenshire Don being in the minus figures level wise, heard of a couple more spanking fresh fish this evening! Well done to the anglers involved. Decent sized fish too...all in double figures.
I'll bite, ArchieL about Forth and Teith.Tweed catches look to be really good , If the theory about returning to Spring Dominance is happenning ? Am i correct in thinking there would be a period where the late spring and summer would be dominant before runs finally change back to spring dominance. Are we seeing this now ? And is this what is happening with the back end runs which appear to have disapeared ? I think it is very interesting and we could debate it all day as you will never know what is happening. For the record my local rivers Teith & Forth show no signs of the improved late spring early summer runs being experienced in some other rivers and this is despite decent water last week. I live in hope.
True on most rivers, but from my personal perspective I did far, far better in 2011, especially in Yorkshire, than I did in 2010. In England the Tyne and other northern rivers established their highest recent catch records in 2011.2009 was indeed a poor year as was 2011 where as 2010 was a good year.
It was unbelievable for me: on average a fish every 90 minutes that I had a fly in the water; on 6 different rivers in England and Scotland; and not a single blank day between May and October.You are right MCX
2009 was a very poor year in England. And 2010 and 2011 were good years
