Helmsdale continues to slow down typically for the time of year. However, a fairly decent spring and summer run has deposited a good head of fish throughout the river, the next spate will give excellent sport and if temps drop soon enough in September the fishing should perk up as per usual. last week reported a hard fought 40 for the week roughly with Frances flies, coneheads, sunrays and wee doubles doing most damage.

Coneheads are still working great and some solid fish are still entering the river. Gordon Sim ( Loop CEO ) worked away very well for his few hours spent on the water bagging a number of fish in pretty unsettled conditions.
Most rivers are fishing well this year and the Thurso had over 100 again last week.
Don't forget, we have loads of killer coneheads and one of the latest hot killers is the Calvin's...Read more
