Last week there were 4 salmon reported from the Association water with the best being a cracking 20 pounder caught and released by local William Jappy, the fish was coloured and fell to a conehead. Robert Flett also had a nice fish which was surprisingly sea-liced and taken from the upper Allan on a copper Frances tube. Read more
The upper river had a quiet week even though the river was in good order due to regular injections from the Loch. As I write today the rain is lashing down and hopefully it will make a difference to water levels next week. Everything has turned a little stale and a good spate would round off the season with some late sport.
Don’t forget you can order all your flies for back end fishing on the Tweed etc on-line from my new fly-store www.helmsdalecompany.com where we have great new tungsten tubes tied up for the cooling water + many more desirable flies. A great Christmas gift this year might be some of my destination selection boxes...
