No more the bridesmaid!

So chuffed for Dalguise resident Michael Carr – his dedication to learning the pools of the beat every week this season has been rewarded with a 19lb springer out of Bridge Pool!  Well done Michael, we’re thrilled for you, let’s hope this is the first of many!

This cracker is his personal best and another M.S.W. out of the ever productive Bridge pool. Despite the visible bleed it was only lightly hooked and returned safely after a five minute recovery.

The cold never bothers us anyway…

As our little corner of Scotland has its first dash of snow for the winter, its a reminder of what a contrary breed the salmon fisher has to be.  While everyone else shivers we are of good cheer – the more snow in the mountains the better, as far as next season is concerned.  A slow melt release for the spring will add to the extra water from the newly redeemed Garry, encouraging multi sea winter fish on their migration from Greenland up to the tributaries – preferably with a timely pit-stop at Dalguise beat, of course…. Bank up the fire, and let it snow!
