Week Commencing 12th September 2016

Well the weather forecast was reasonably accurate; the timings might have been slightly out, but not too much. Next week is pretty similar some days warm and sunny, the next cloudy and overcast. Temperatures remain around the mid teens with no sign of overnight frost! The tides peak overnight and there will be no new water all week.

Catches: The River has the end of season look about it, there are plenty of fish in all the pools, but they are hard to tempt into taking a fly.

Gordon Castle managed to stay in the mid thirties. Delfur had a relatively poor week failing to get into double figures, Mark tells me the fish were very dour.

Craigellachie had three. Carron a couple.

Grantown got into double figures, the high water helping. The best was estimated at 23lbs  caught on a fly by John Davies from Tarric Mor.

Kinchurdy kept picking away and I am grateful for the pictures.
