    Hopefully 2020 will be the year of plenty (forgive the rhyme but it is Burns night) as far as fishing goes for the Don this coming season. Apart from the photo on the front, of my Grandson with his first Salmon which was caught on the Don,you can read the river Don review for 2019 in this news...

    Great to here of Spawning Salmon returning to the Don after an absence of 200 years. I never dreamed I would see that in my life time. When I lived in South Yorkshire up to the eighties the River Don in Rotherham looked like a Witcher's cauldron .

    Salmon catches have shown a great improvement on the Aberdeenshire Don this season.Unfortunately sea trout catches have not been so good. I think the unsettled river levels have not helped. However,when we do get more normal summer water levels,i have managed to pick up a few well conditioned...

    The frame of my Whitlock landing bet snapped at the ferrule due to misuse .I contacted Don at Sharpes of Aberdeen who had taken over Whitlock nets when they became insolvent some years ago. Now this net I had was the premium Whitlock net , (I think it was around £80 over 15 years ago ) when I...

    I was fishing the Alford Angling Association's water at the Brig of Alford this morning and sadly, I saw a diseased salmon. It looked as though it was UDN as all of its head was covered in a white fungus. It reminded me of some 3o years ago when I used to see a lot of this on both the Dee and...

    Despite the very low water and high temperatures last season we saw an increase in the Salmon catches on the Don,although the catches were still poor at least it was a step in the right direction,and hopefully with the right conditions this coming season we will continue to see an improvement ...

    I know that this is a fishing forum but I enquire if any member has any books on deer stalking that they may wish to sell. Living in Aberdeen as I do, and a keen angler being fortunate to fish the Dee, Spey and the Don on a very regular basis, I am also a keen stalker and I thought there may be...

    First time out on the Don near Kemnay this morning for a few hours. Very pleased to manage a modest result. No sea lice, been in for probably a week or so. t.c.

    Spotted this in Old Rayne today, Bonnyton burn running orange. The burn runs into the river Urie , which in turn runs into the Don. This is not an isolated case as I witnessed this environmental vandalism many times over the years. Called SEPA straight away, usual waste of time of course. Next...

    Evening all, I'm looking to get my first spinning rod, for fishing the middle Don. Can anyone please give me some guidance on what size rod length and gram weight it should be able to throw? Also what lures should I get as a minimum. I've no experience with them so any help would be gratefully...

    This could be the year that decides the river Don's fate, will it continue to decline or will we see the start of a recovery, i hope and think that this season will see some signs of a recovery but anglers should be prepared that the normal runs of fish might not enter the river when expected...

    Hi All, A few years ago my step dad found a book at a 2nd hand market, all about the River Don and her beats, etc. Apparently it was nicely illustrated and a nice looking book. Anyway, he didn't buy it, despite thinking I'd like it given I fished the Don at the time, and has kicked himself...

    Tonight I happened upon some historical catch information relating to the River Don beat at Inverurie between 1974 - 1999, association water that it very dear to me, so i thought i would share. In drawing parallels to today, what a difference and what a shame. I have read on here arguments to...
