River still high at Kintore, visibility is however suprisingly good, about 18" so had a chuck this afternoon.

3 Fish landed, nothing big, here's one of them.



Taken on a size 4 black woolly bugger with an orange cone.

Cheers

Just got into this one :roll

Fantastic fish Ben :shock In superb condition too, for its size.
Don't suppose you took any scales?

That's a small one Baz, it's only a size 4 and tied "sparse & short"!  I do prefer fishing dries to rising fish but in a flood there is little chance of moving anything to a dry.

Make sure he pays for the cinema and buys you popcorn and a drink. BUT, insist you sit near the front, I hear he has wandering hands ;)
