    Came upon this today Not sure if this will come out clear enough to read. This is letter from my 19 year old father, after being in the war for 3 years I think. To his father who was in the first world war. It makes sober reading and puts our quarantine in to perspective. In the world of...

    This one sat right where you see it for 1 hour and ten minutes before it left. He or she had a squirrel pinned in one of the spruce trees but..... Eventually the squirrel approached and gave the owl hell for sitting there. I felt sure the fur would fly but Squirrel was allowed to run down...

    Just enjoying my first evening at home after nights and rummaging You Tube for a few sounds and came across this outrageous mob. So any one who likes a sophisticated range of pleasing sounds to enhance their evening's quaffing of a few mood enhancers could do much worse then wrapping their lug...

    Pigeons coming home to roost? Spoke today to the owers of the bed and breakfast that I stay in on Speyside each year. We take the last week in May. Prime time you might say. They are two of the nicest people you could ever meet, they look after us wonderfully well, the breakfast and dinner each...

    Hi all, i am after some advice about a problem i have with my Jack Russell. My dog is 8 years old and has always had issues with the noise from fireworks and thunder storms, but soon became ok again when the noise was over. However, due mainly i think to a bird scarer going off near to home, he...

    The weather throughout September and October was (excepting for the rains) exceptional. Right up to this past weekend which found me several miles up the Kashwhitna River things were mild. I have not covered the river boat and prepped it for winter because I fully expected a few days this week...
  14. Fly Tying Topics
    I’m a complete novice at tying tubes and my fly tying skills are basic any way but ordered up some Foxy tails bits n bobs to construct a mongrel of two of my favourite tube flies that have been successful lately. Usually I don’t have any confidence in any thing I tie but put these on this...

    As the title suggests, this is just because this new Lotto advert was filmed in my home village on the Moray Coast, Macduff. Even more so that two houses filmed bring back great memories from my childhood. One was the home of my best mate through school and the 'winning' house I know inside and...
  18. Reels
    One of my pair of sterling long time favourite reels the Hardy ULAD reel has started to stick a little, yes its spent a large portion of the last 10 days submersed in the river Tay.But so far I've enjoyed what has appeared to be a bomb proof totally reliable reel. Its currently sat in the garage...
  19. New Member Introductions
    Very new to salmon (and fly) fishing, but my family recently came into a membership in a camp on the Miramichi so I figured it was time to start getting some serious information about the sport in my home country! Looking forward to learning from you all and sharing the success as it comes if I...
  20. Traditional/Fully Dressed Patterns
    Hello friends :) I haven't posted here in a while, so thought I might, it's getting very close to our fall season here in the Greatlakes region. I'm a big fan of Spey flies and find they produce well on my home river for both salmon and steelhead. However, I've made variations over the years...
