I bumped one fish Eddie, which slashed at my ever so slightly being stripped Sunray twice..... but that was it for me.

To my knowledge from the 5 of us fishing three beats there were two fish were landed and released that day, estimated at 12lbs and 17lbs I think, from water that didn't have the sun beating down on in relentlessly and before 11am.
After 11 it was just a smidgen bright , nice for the tourists though :z6

Should the offer come my way I would absolutely jump at an offer to go back, simply a super place and if anyone should fancy going - you should :z16

Had my day out on Castle Forbes today.



Took Glass and Grass for the day out, one for the nymph and one for the dry, not often i carry 2 rods, but it was an experiment as i was rather excited about being on Forbes after all these years.

So it was an interesting day with Hatches on the go from 11am right through till 4pm, Olives and March browns at different points.
However there were only a handful of rising fish, i measured the water temp and it was still just 9 degrees, But the PTN started things off quite well



Some nice water for it though, although you can just imagine the rising fish.



There was the odd rising fish in the fast water, but nothing spectacular, though they were keen for the CDC spider



Lots of superb water to explore, although it seemed the nymph was a better option.



I did manage to find one cracking fish sweeping a Vee at the tail of a pool, i didn't know he was a cracker until he took the fly, but all hell broke loose as he snaffled a CDC spider and proceeded to jump around all over the place, unfortunately he managed to wrap  the tippet round his nose and then he came in quite quickly, i should have guessed what would happen next, as i put the net in the weeds as usual to unhook the fish, i had to unwrap the tippet from round his nose, the second he was free, he took off like a rocket and before i knew it was back in the river, but what a lovely fish and this time on the Dry :z12

Next one was a bit smaller, but i managed a picture :X1



Still i wandered the whole beat and managed a few fish from each run, i saw a pair of Kingfishers a couple of deer and 4 Salmon moved in 4 different pools, A great day, with the best conditions so far for one of my days out.



Cheers

Sandy
