Salmon caught last week:

Small quantities of summer fish are arriving daily now. Good water levels helped produce a 4 and 3 day catch on the Association water last Friday and yesterday (Monday 9th). Alistair Jappy had one of the better fish with an 8 pounder in the Flat pool on a TD and visitor Angus Macdonald (Weeker!!) had a nice brace with a grilse and another 8lbs fish also from the tail of the Flat pool, a Pot bellied Pig was the deadly fly. Today (Tuesday 10th) Hamish Macrae (Dornoch) grassed his first Helmsdale grilse from the Style pool late in the afternoon on a GP, well done him, I think he may return! a good run of grilse was reported at the time.

Salmon caught last week:

We have a dirty rising river tonight so things are looking up for the week ahead. Last week saw the arrival of some grilse but as usual for the time of year they were thin on the ground. Two were caught on the Association water - one of which was only 1.75lbs, Ker Hamilton and Gordon Innes were the captors. The beats had mixed fortunes and had to work very hard for any sport, this will not go down as a week to remember. I think the run will build from this week and probably peak at the end of the month again so get your flies and tackle ordered asap. Start on www.helmsdalecompany.com for the latest killers and call me regarding tackle. My offer of the month is a super grilse outfit - 13ft shakespeare salmon rod/reel/Scientific Anglers line ready to go for £99. Simms kit is still on promotion so call me for the best UK prices direct to your door on 01431821372.
