Week Commencing 16th September 2013

I am sorry this week’s report is late but Word press seemed to have some issues and I could not gain access to the web site.

Let me begin by congratulating Euan and Tracy Reid on the birth of their second son Oscar.

The river stubbornly remains low, there was a small kick last Monday and I think this helped the catches a little. The week begins warm with temperatures in the high teens, there is some rain forecast for the end of the week but I feel it will be too late for the Spey! The tides have peaked this weekend and there will be no new water for the rest of the season.

Catches. The Gordon Castle beats were close to ninety. Alex Robertson sent me these photographs.

Delfur had a slightly quieter week finishing in the mid thirties, including two in the twenties; Mark and Rory were kind enough to send me some more pictures.

Rothes had their best week of the season with almost thirty landed, most were coloured with only a couple of fresh ones. The beat above had slightly less and Charles Harman was kind enough to send me some photos.

Craigellachie finished the week strongly with five on Friday. Wester Elchies continued to pick away. Grantown started the week with a bang with nineteen on Monday the rest of the week was not surprisingly quieter but they finished with twenty-nine the best being a fourteen pound fish from Tarric Mor.
