    [Edit] You will find 2021 reporting beginning around post #40. That can be found on Page #2 so scroll down and follow if you wish :) Hi All, Not sure it's my place to start this thread, but since nobody else has I will! Nice to see the river getting off the mark for 2020 on Saturday - quite...

    After I left the river on Saturday, the river rose from 1m to over 2.5m with snow melt so that was going to give me the Monday morning blues as I expected the river to be unfishable. A chance look at the levels at lunch time showed that it was dropping quicker than expected and was around 1.2m...

    Without a doubt, we all have our favourite easy to fish pools, wade in, chuck out a size 8 on a bit of a sinky tippy thing, then wind in a chrome bright fish!. But!, whats at the other end of the scale?, pools that do produce fish, but it's a hard fought battle for what ever the reason.You...

    Just wondering if any forum members had any run ins on the river Bank this year with other anglers or river users? Over the past couple of years I've become more and more of a recluse at the river. I used to talk to everyone I met at the river. Over recent years though I've met people, said...

    I was fishing with my good pal Allysshrimp today in low water and a high sky. Bill put me first through a pool and watched as 2 fish came to my fly without disturbing the water. I saw the 1st one and felt no more than a tap but never saw the 2nd. We both sat and watched as fish jockeyed for...

    Whilst thrashing the Tay to a foam, its nice to keep the eyes open for whats going off around you(needed something to stave off the boredom), aside from Roe deer almost every morning, Beaver gnawing trees down and a solitary Otter, there was a Kingfisher almost every day that regularly visited...

    It's a situation we all envisage,but rarely meet. You're on your own. You hook a fish way too big for your net. You can't move position. There are no shallow areas to beach a fish. This was my predicament on Wednesday. You could say of my own making, and I couldn't argue. I normally carry a...

    Despite being huge (5' last night) my favourite wee spate stream was dropping away nicely by this morning and I knew it would be at a good height by this afternoon. Got down for 1.30pm and saw the sight I was hoping for, the river in cracking ply for 'pool tail hijacking'!:lol: It was hot, humid...

    Some years ago I took a bloke stalking . We got in on a stag, and at about 70 yards range he pulled the trigger. The stag went down, but the shot was just a little too far back. The head was still up and I didn't want to take any chances, so I told him to hit it again. 'I can't,' he said. 'Look...

    My boots have come to the end of their time, and looking to buy a new pair but I'm a bit loathed at spending couple hundred quid on a pair that only last a season or 2 really, my biggest problem is the walking miles up and down the river from pool to pool etc most specific wading boots dont seem...

    Got an e-mail from one of the ghillies I fish with on the Naver, and the first springer came off there today. The pool was Potato Park which is the second pool down on beat 6, the lowest beat, and along with beat 5 the best early beat. The fish had no lice, but was said to be a very fine 16...

    Talking about different reactions to flys on loxies naver post got me thinking about earlier on this year I spent an evening at the loups this summer showing the water to one of my friends. The water was really too low, but had some spanking fresh grilse in the loups pool. He tried various flies...

This year we moved north, not only geographically up to the Thurso, but also up the price scale too! :eek: In what...
