It wouldn't be a finch would it :?

I recall having an arguement debate with my Grandad (who was from Largs) in one of my summer visits about some finches in their garden and he called them something that sounded like shilfie  :z8

I have been reading an old "Hooked on Scotland" book I just read it there a couple of days ago.

1st place in Englandshire was Blagdon.

OK back to my Salmon Question

This years Salmon opening day

What does the largest Salmon caught on an Aberdeenshire river on opening day have in common with the 1st fish caught on the Helmsdale ?
