    Had a very nice holiday near Inverness way back in the 80s. In conversation with some local anglers they let slip that Sea Trout could be caught on the Black Isle but I'd stand no chance of getting one without a special local home made lure. The most information I could drag out of anyone was...

    Hi all, myself and my brother have decided to take up salmon fishing this coming season after spending years fly fishing for trout/grayling, we've joined a local northeast club TAS and can't wait to get out and learn the water we will have access to. I've bought most of the gear I'm going to...
  8. Shrimp Fly Patterns
    An amiable chap fishing the Delnashach water of the Aven came and spoke with myself (Mick)and pal (Brian). It was my pal Willie Forbe's water on the A beat of that river which was not good qual water but was deemed to be the 'assault course' ! He said he would give me his phone number to...

    Have found this very useful the last few years. British sub aqua club chart showing Springs and Neaps for the whole year. Obviously checking the exact details on a local tide table is necessary but I've found it very useful for planning trips in advance. Meet Google Drive - One place for all...

    I am left-handed and wind my fly reels with my right. I notice however that many (the majority it seems) right handed members of my local club wind with their right hand. Is this just local to my area? I would imagine that for most the greatest effort in playing a fish would fall to your rod...
  16. Scottish Rivers
    The first river to open on the 11th January 2019 and as far as I know the usual free days apply as in previous years. If the weather is kind then always the chance of bar of silver. Your chance to give the local economy a big boost if staying for a few days. Be quick as accommodation is limited...
