  1. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    This is a copy of my most successful 'green' fly. My dad brought me some flies from a shop in Donegal Town in the early 2000s. This was one of them and caught me four grilse in a day in July that same year. I haven't used one since but might be tempted to try this one at some stage this season.

    So, a green bucktail arrived in the post yesterday. I think it was a result of using ebay while under the influence of single malt! :lol: So what to use it for?

    It’s been a real struggle this season. Limited time fishing and when I have managed to get out it’s been hard going. Managed a day last Monday and landed a 10lb sea trout on a fly and then finished off today with a grilse of about 5lbs, also on a fly! ? Both safely returned. Rods going...

    The thread title says it all - where do Grilse feed ? I should know this, but dont. Do they get all the way to Greenland; if not where do they head to ? If so, from the size of some of the fish pictured recently, its a long way to go to put on just 4 or 5lbs in weight, during their winter at...

    I've just come back from my annual July week on the Helmsdale. The Spring run was very badly affected with disease with hundreds of dead fish pulled from the river. Many rod caught fish were in a very sorry state and our ghillie pulled a twenty five pounder out of a burn that was on it's last...

    How is this years grilse run comparing to the last few ? I am currently up the Helmsdale for second time in a couple of weeks and it certainly seems to be a weaker run this year . Small grilse as well a lot of the ones that have been caught..

    Hi Everyone, Here are some photos I shot during my May trip to the river Dee. During five days of fishing I managed two wee seatrout and lost four grilse salmon. Not bad considering conditions at that time.
