Super week 21springers landed

15/04/2018

Week beginning April 9th

I have just had some superb early spring fishing across the water on the Gledfield beat, I fished with Graham Grant who is great company we had good fun and great pal Callum Beattie would fish from time to time. As they say to cut a long story short we landed 21 springers and lost 11 other salmon, the eleven were hooked and were on some of them almost to the net so it could have been a real bonanza super fishing to two rods!

We also had numerous pulls the best day was a day of 7 salmon and a day of 6 salmon . we had super water heights due to snow melt coming away the water was running from a high of 1 ft 11 to most days it would start out at around 1ft 9 to 1ft 6 inch Saturday started out at 1ft 3 inch the lowest it had been all week.

Graham landed 7 salmon, 5 of them were caught in the March pool, and 2 in the Gledfield pool. Callum landed a 2 in the Gledfield pool. Allan landed 12 Salmon, 7 in the Bridge pool, 2 in the Gledfield pool, 1 in Kennel run, 1 in the Gledfield run, and 1 in the Oystercatcher, Graham had the best fish of the week weighing in at 12lbs, the others were 5 at 9lbs.7 at 8lbs. & 8 at 7lbs.

David Theaker Rothes beat River Spey

I have just had e mail from good friend ” have rod will travel ” David Theaker who just landed this cracking springer on the Rothes beat of the River Spey well done David.

It is good to see you caught it on a 3/4 inch Kyley and yes as you said reminds me of us sitting at the bay window in the Manse at Amat having a dram and us both tying up some Kyley’s before we usually put them to good use.

Just had e mail update from DavidĀ  “WHY FISH WITH ANYTHING ELSE ” and Mike and Robbie the two Ghillies send their regards. That’s a cracker David well done only a Kyley could tempt that one
