  1. Irish Shrimp Fly Patterns
    I first saw this pattern in Peter O'Reilly's book around 20 years ago but had never tried it. Gwelsher sent me some flies one time and there was a flouresc green shrimp among them. I remember using it one evening at the river a few years back when I hooked 5 salmon in a few hours and there were...

    River Ewe, Tee Pool, 1981 (aged 7). 5+3/4lb. Fishing on my own with a fibreglass Diawa Osprey (which I've still got in the shed), Pfleuger reel, and of all things a beaten up old dapping fly on the end. Can remember seeing the boil as it took like it was yesterday. Played it for what seemed...

    As usual on xmas morning I start by opening presents that appear to be clothes, not the ungrateful sort I hate getting clothes as gifts. I like to choose my own. I opened what appeared to be an item of clothing to find a book wrapped in bubble wrap and a dish cloth to make it look like a...

  10. Worm Fishing
    Ok, first time for me fishing for salmon with worms. I set up with some 9lb line, #8 bait holder hook and freeline it. Managed to land 7 trout and 3 smolts so far in 2 days. Now I'm wondering, all the fish were nicely lip hooked. :peace: but everyone saying fish swallow the worm, I'm thinking...

    I've just returned from a lovely week on the Helmsdale, my first exposure to this wonderful little river and its exceptional variety. We were short of water until the Friday night, with only 5 inches on the gauge, 2 of those supplied by release from the loch. I moved a fish with my third cast...

    With news of big fish about, i sped off at breakneck speed down the A96, clean draars pulled on the night before for speed in the morning, for a day rod on the Northie yesterday. Met the Ghillie, pleasantries exchanged with the other rods i then set off for the most appealing spot. Anticipation...

    Tuesday's effort with the Ure running at + 3' 6". A lovely strong grilse of almost 6 lbs in excellent condition bearing in mind that it's run almost 150 miles from the North Sea. Hooked in the tail of a pool and headed off into the fast water below, which gave me 6 minutes of great sport.

    As my preferred method of fishing is worming, i obviously use a weight which has led me to catch a few odd balls, such as a sheeps scull ,and another time i hooked something heavy but because i was fishing in a back eddy with the current cumming towards me i was gaining line when i saw what...

    Not a typical Teith fish quite slim but covered in lice. Thought it was considerably bigger as every time I applied some pressure it shot off into deeper water. Was about 8lb. Turns out was hooked in the tongue which might explain its behaviour. Recovered ok though and heading for Callander..
