End of season for me.
Started mid July.
Finished on 10 salmon and 10 seatrout.
Average weight of salmon 5.5lb
Average weight of seatrout 3 lb
Best salmon 18lb licer in October. PB on the flee
Best seatrout 5.5lb
5 fish on Dr Ps flees
3 on one!
Probably had a salmon or seatrout every 2.5 hrs.

Had a last cast on the Northie at Burn House today with my best mate and my mate from Singapore.

Water was too high when we got there and a lot of leaves, but decent visibility.
I ghillied as there was really only a couple of spots fishable and I've had plenty this year.
Between 9 and 11.
My best mate had a fresh 3lb seatrout and lost 3 salmon and my other mate lost 3 salmon including what was probably a monster.
Just a huge weight that slowly went against the current in the eddy to the big water then ping! And a clean looking fish of about 7 lb.

The water the rose 2 feet in about 10 minutes so went back to the house for lunch and kill a couple of hours.

Went back at 2.
Water was at least another foot up, but good clarity and less leaves and still slowly rising.

My mate got a coloured fish of about 4lb and that was it.

Probably about the only fishable spot on the river today.

Weather was not nearly as bad as forecast.

A great end to the season that could have been even better on another day.

That's it till 2021.

A funny sort of season, but an enjoyable 3 months none the less.

His Mows, is that up through the Loups?
Yesterday was.
Sandbed ( the one with the concrete platform on the Loups side) and coffin.
First cast there this year.
Most of my fish have been off the Southie, with some off the Westie.
