Golden hour has passed, and we’re moving towards optimum conditions for sea trout. All the best to all participating in the FishPal Sea Trout Festival tonight – we have a few first-timers at Dalguise tonight and I can’t wait to see if they catch the bug.  I cut my teeth on sea trout fishing at the Fortesk beat on the South Esk, and my long apprenticeship yielded a lifetime obsession for night fishing – a truly unique perspective on our sport. Pitting your wits against the wily sea trout in the dark is the Marmite of fishing – you will either love it or hate it and I’m looking forward to the chance to pass on a glimpse of what sea trout fishing has to offer to our guests this evening.

Tight lines folks – this is the best kind of insomnia!   Moray
