David McPherson caught a 14lb Spring Cock Salmon on a 30g copper/silver Salmo

on The Casting Platform at 3.30pm on Tuesday 7th February 2012.

This was the first ever Salmon caught by David McPherson from Perthshire,

 off The River Tay after 5 years of trying and only his second visit to Dalguise.

After several Kelts over the past few weeks,

 and a large Springer lost from the boat on Friday 3rd February,

Stan was delighted the first Springer of the season had been landed and returned safely.

There are certainly fish now being seen throughout the beat.

Very well done to you David, may this be the first of many.
