Many congratulations to our syndicate member Ian King!  Ian, a long term hard-fishing Dalguise angler, landed this absolute beauty on Friday afternoon in Island stream, by Dowally Burn.  Fresh out of the mould, this perfect sea-liced silver torpedo is the first fish actually landed on the fly this season, after many false starts and close misses.  Caught on a fly of his own creation no less, a number of runs made for good sport and a memorable tale to bring back to the lodge.

Back at the lodge of course, the ribbing intensifies, leaving Bob no choice but to raise a dram, mutter ‘Damn’, and start all over again next week….!  Well done, Ian, we’re delighted for you.
