We’ve finished the week with six (2 today) at Juniper Bank, I’ll post images when our party has sobered up enough to send them to me........
When CharlieH was doing his guess the weight thread I found the Tweed / weight length chart was the most accurate, if you could get a close estimate of length , so much so that I would now use it for any fish I wanted to know a fairly accurate weight of without having to stress a fish out by actually going through the process of weighing.The fish would need to be 45" long, going by the Tweed weight/length chart, to make 16kg. So there has been a simple, honest mistake with the weighing?
(remembering that a lot of the fish used to compile the chart would have been in better condition than the one in the picture).
Again, if I am missing something, tell me where I am going wrong.
Leaf soup today and slowly rising river - very difficult. Stuck with a small conehead and single hook and lost a fish and pulled another. Just goes to show if you can get the fly under the leaves it’s still worth it. Frustrating though.

Frustratings no the word Dunbar it was absolutely horrific and pretty dangerous with the wind at time's when casting, I think I lost count at 365.421 leaves, although I did manage one around 7lb before the river went totally out of commission
I was the one holding that fish and know the weight, as we weighed it. Now, as we all know pictures can be deceptive, so would anyone like to guess the weight, just for a bit of fun?
No cheating by looking on the Upper Caberstone daily reports please.
I was indeed the captor of No.3 a fine fish. I was slightly disappointed as you can probably hear in the video,that it didn't beat my PB to date of 25lb.I have been lucky enough to have caught a few fish around the 20lb mark and this guy looked way bigger than most of them. My first impression on seeing the fish in the net was I got a 30. Brian weighted it with a McLeans and all my fish over the years have been weighted with the same. If it said 25lb its 25lb. Its a PB for me on the Tweed, and so the search continues for that elusive 30lber.
Enjoy the video.
