Well the season stutters to a close, and next week I will have my first Sunday off eight months! It has been getting harder and harder to keep the reports fresh and exciting. Over the last few weeks I have seen skeins of geese coming into Scotland for the winter. Probably telling us it is a time to put away the rods and get the guns ready.
Last week’s weather was fairly accurate; there was a little rain high up in the catchment which has given the river a little rise, the river is up just over 6” in Aberlour, hopefully it might give the fish a stir up. Next week’s weather is not much different than the last few weeks, days of sunshine, with perhaps some rain midweek. The tides are building till the end of the season.
Catches: there have been some. The Gordon Brae beats finished with just under thirty, the end of the week being the best.
Again Delfur fell just short of double figures.
Rothes had a couple.
I hear that they had a fresh fish at Easter Elchies!
Grantown finished with four this week but perhaps the lift in the water might bring a few more in before the season finishes.
That’s about it
