    I have been feeling frustrated this week trying to predict when or where to fish (amongst forecasts of unpredictable thundery downpours). However, I have come to the conclusion I have been better staying at home, than the poor chap who got stranded today at Burnfoot on the Border Esk. Very...

    My last post was on the Border Esk 2018 thread, so it's time to update for 2019. On the 2018 thread we had a lot of discussion about the C&R bylaws imposed in May 2018, to confirm these still are in force on the Border Esk and Eden, I have detailed the main points on the latter pages of the...

  8. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Despite being very much a 'modern' style Spey this was invented by a chap from Moffat - so presumably originally intended for the Anna and or Border Esk and Nith. Dx

    The vote was unanimous tonight at the Esk board AGM that the buy out Of the netting station at the Nab will go ahead and finally no more netting after this season . I think it has come at the right time because from what myself nd everyone from top to bottom are seeing is very poor numbers of...

    Well taken the plunge and signed up for annual permit for these two associations. They will form the backbone of my year's fishing. Allan Water new to me. Both very reasonably priced especially for a Senior. A few days on the North Esk, the Spey and maybe the Tummel will add a bit of variation...

  17. Classified Wanted
    Recently bought a 13ft which I like but it's a bit heavy for all day use. Would like to try a 12ft as it might be just right for my September trip to the North Esk. Send me a PM if you have one you are prepared to part with.
