My week up at Muir Esk gave me 4 fish between 8ish lbs and near twenty ,saturday giving me one at 08.45 and one at 18.10.
The evening was perfect ,work chose to call me and the moment was lost ,thougght I was in for a 3 fish day !
All the fish were coloured and rapidly returned .
Mick had two including a possible 20 ,and a wee 5/6 lb silver cock !
So with our trip  to Haddo had fish most days !
