"Goolager" Iain with a nice Haddo Rainbow :cool:

Out today 27th and caught 5. Using pink, white and black snakes fished deep. Also another on a marabou bloodworm.
Had plenty nibbles on the pink snake but no takes before realising that the hook had snapped

I too finally got to read the piece today :z18

Great information, backing up a lot of what i've believed for a long time,
very surprised with the timing as well, but just goes to show what actual evidence and not just anecdotes can provide.

I've always thought that good fish are found in good holding spots and it is not necessarily the same fish each time you try for it, this goes some way to support that idea :z18

Makes you think about wading at the end of the season though, if the trout have spawned then i'd be mortified to think i was disturbing their redds. One to bear in mind from now on :z16

When you say upper and lower parts of the river how far would the fish be moving in terms of miles

I guess you would need tens of receivers to track fish movements that way. Or a very determined person with polaroids.

A hand held receiver can be employed as used on the Don. If I remember it has a range of about 100m and it is a case of starting below the last known location and walking until you locate the fish. I thinks a few long walks might be required with some fish :)

We also thanks to global warming have huge schools of dolphins who have very quickly learned that food is plentiful on salon river estuary's.

You certainly see Dolphins/Porpoises at the mouth of the Dee throwing salmon around as if playing with them. Some of the fish are well over 20 pounds in weight, being thrown from one dolphin to the next.
