Amid the mixed hailstones and sunshine, braced against the bitter gusts coming downstream from the North, Andy Aitken was thankful for his all-weather jacket while landing this sea-liced 9lb fish on a V110 in Bridge Pool today.

Watching the fish chase his lure with just a few turns left on the reel, the expectation that it would turn away at the end of its run was overturned as it grabbed on hard in the very last seconds of the pursuit – so ne’er cast a cloot till May be oot, but cast a line for a salmon (or troot 😂)
