Will it won't it, the drama is too much for me. Spey sounds like a good call.

I'll just have to listen to you boys for the foreseeable future as doubt Easyjet will get me up there when it rains.

Looks like rain coming for the North West as usual, but doesn't mean there will be any fish on the back of it. The beats on the Findhorn haven't reported a single fish since we were up there 3 weeks ago!

Wonder if all the missing runs will arrive in the summer :unsure:

Looking forward to your report Scoops (y)
You not salmon fishing again this year Jason?
Hitting it right is hard enough when close enough to the rivers now adays
I even contemplated the Dee but was surprised to see so few availability for next week

Hoping to get up for a week around the beginning of August but watching how things go. It's a busy time for me, but rain and fish and flights and boss etc all have to align to make it worthwhile.

Would be good to see fish arrive on the Findhorn as fancy a few more days up there, on the Forres water though as you can come and go as you please and it's as good as anywhere on the system.

Oh, then there's the missus...
Sounds like my lottery ticket for tomorrow might not be so bad odds after all 馃槀

Hope it all comes together for you 馃馃帲

Used to do well in low water at Tilbouries just a few years back - other than that the Dee's been crap for too long.

I've dumped all my Spring lets, not worth the money or effort. Mind you, I was there with the Dee in the mid 90's. Local rods went out, fished, got fish and started the river up again. Trouble was that within a short period of time the local, supporting rods got dumped off the river.......!

Not playing that game again. If I never fished it again I wouldn't be upset.
Some nice water at Tillbouries,
remember a few years ago in June got a shot of the ghillies spinning rod to fish Lawson's, spanking fresh 10ish punner took a few jumps n runs and gone the bloody knot had pulled 馃槀

My weather watch turned out to be rubbish no lift in Sight, looking at long forecast I'm as well giving it a bash at Aberlour tomorrow as no significant rain forecast for the Esks till I'm back at work, busy next time off work so May-well be August water permitting I get down to Brechin or the Westie 馃槼

Need a good spate, looking at the odd ones there has been it鈥檚 lucky if they last long enough to see one high tide, let alone clear a bit for another few high tides

though you would think fish would be desperate to run on any lift
Thought about Brechin tomorrow but probably save the petrol as if it goes up a bit will no doubt still be manky in the morning then level all gone by the afternoon
