Internet Copyright is not that difficult to understand, if you did not take the photographs or write the article you need permission from the site owner before you can copy it and use it. See here http://webdesign.about.com/od/copyright/a/aa081700a.htm
Using photographs without permission is theft, if Moses had come down from Mount Sinai and the Internet had been on the go I am sure he would have amended the eighth commandment to include using photographs without permission. Cutting off the copyright mark is similar to stealing a bike and grinding off the frame number! Enough preaching for today, back to writing my report.
Another trying week, with few fish caught. The promised rain did actually materialise and the river rose, but was very ‘black” on towards the end of the week which as most Spey anglers know does not encourage the fish to take. Hopefully now this acidic episode has past the fish will show more interest and start to take more readily. Monday is forecast to be bright and sunny with some more rain showers for Tuesday. After that conditions look perfect for salmon fishing. The tides are building all week, and I hope this coupled with the rise in water will bring a few more fresh fish into the system.
Catches, as I mentioned before there were not that many. Gordon Castle beats had a handful. Delfur perhaps a couple more. Mike Euan tells me they had five and I have not heard of many beats with more. Craigellachie started the week on a positive note with Mark Cassley getting this fish from the Lower Slabs.
Wester Elchies managed three with Tay Board Chairman Bill Jack landing the lion’s share. Kinermony and Delagyle had a similar number. The Norwegian party fishing Carron and Phones also had three and have promised me some media when they return home. Grantown again is only being lightly fished but are continuing to catch fish.
At least when I do not receive many pictures it does not take me long to do my report, on the other hand I would be happy to work away to see more happy smiling faces!
