First Brownie of the year

Fished Marnoch Lodge on the Deveron today. Started out fishing for salmon unfortunately no springers did see one fish and landed a kelt about 7lb. 
Around 12 o’clock started to see the odd olive popping off then notice a few trout rising so went back to the car and set up the trout rod.  I picked up a new Rio LT trout line from Frank at turriff tackle when I got my permit so wanted to give it a bash.  Took a bit getting used to. After missing about 5 rises in a row landed my first brownie of the year  :z4.  Took a olive emerger might not be the biggest but i was chuft.

Olives continued to come off till around 4:30 a few nice fish were rising despite it being bitterly cold.

Stoped around 5:30 as was soaked and freezing waded a bit to deep trying to reach a beauty at the far bank  :oops

Off to Fetternear on the Don tomorrow so hopefully get my fist salmon of the year.

Well done Michael,

still waiting to get the singlehander out for Trout myself, hopefully tomorrow. It was a miserably cold wet and muddy day today and almost May??????!

Best of luck on the Don tomorrow.
