Not many highlights on the fishing front apart from the fact that some rivers are fishing quite well due to some fresh fish still hitting the system like Ness, Spey and Tay. I also hear that the Nith, Towy and Tyne are fishing pretty good too. Most of the Highland rivers would still benefit from more water and some proper spates to get them fully charged again.

However, on the fly front, one or two flies are standing out for us at the moment. Our new range of Baby Tds are selling like hot cakes with the added option of buying with trebles, doubles and single tube hooks to suit, anglers are really taking advantage of the choice of hook with each fly, you can ofcourse purchase these little beauties without a hook.

The RS Red Alistair seems to be getting better as the season goes on which is no surprise, red/black always scores well as the water cools and Simon Mellard proved this fishing the Tyne last week at Bywell. He was part of a 5 rod party who caught 20 fish for the...

Steady fishing

The river produced over 30 fish last week plus a sprinkling off the local water. There are still fresh fish running and some very big fresh fish have been spotted jumping for the time of year. The low water conditions are not the best right now but the next spate should bring very good fishing. As usual in these conditions an array of tactics can work, hitching and dibbling with small tubes and doubles would be your best bet at the moment and we have all the killers you need including the tiny tube doubles and trebles required.

Watch out here this week for some stunning new flies and the release of our best ever autumn set, including our favoutite Red Alistair pictured below which is a real fish producer as the season slides into autumn mode.
