Fished the Alford & Montgarie water today, nice water and looked very fishy but, no salmon!!  Got a stale 2lb sea trout on a stripped Sunray and a couple of brownies, saw a few nice trout moving to sedges that were coming off about 2ish.

Cheers Iain, found another pic of it on my camera tonight that I took whilst releasing it, huge mouth on it!



The following fish is an Annan fish that was previously my PB, this fish was longer but nowhere near as plump, was not weighed but measured about 27", same length as the butt section of a 9' 4pc rod.  At the time I caught this one I did not carry scales or a tape measure or even a net, a bollocking from Mr Procter sorted that one out :z4



Fished the botom end of the Kintore water tonight and saw two salmon move, almost impossible to fish from the south bank with a fly rod once you get around the last bend, didn't get a touch!

Cheers

Ben

Anybody else been out on the Don? I'm heading for the aberdeenshire water tomorrow and wondering between the inverurie water and Kintore?  Thats providing the gas man gets there at a decent time.
