Week Commencing 8th June 20.

What a week, it has taken about 2 hours to process the photographs and I have not even used all I received. The river is realy fishing well.

It’s going to be warm and mainly dry next week with perhaps some rain on Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. The tides are building all week, hopefully this run of fish continues.

 

Catches, Let me say here to save repeating myself for every beat and estate, the river is only being lightly fished most beats have only half the number of rods fishing, if that.

 

Fochabers Angling Association had about fifteen fish recorded; Ross Wood managed to catch a couple. Tony Smith was also amongst them.

Gordon Castle, were just short of fifty, Graham Ritchie had a special day, catching ten to his own rod.

Arndilly started fishing again this week and had over sixty fish including one of over twenty pounds.

 

Inverfiddich, a single bank beat consisting of one pool, had eight for the week, and wasn’t not fished on Monday as the river was too high.
