It get's worse Iain, because I thought fishing would be pointless I went comfort shopping at Ben's fishing emporium!

Lots of stuff I didn't really need apart from one of those really slim see through fly boxes for my sea-trout flies.

My first visit to the Don this year  :shock and I caught a Salmon  :X4

 

Rather coloured but a salmon nonetheless  :z12 My first 'real' fly caught salmon...... I was targeting them and I was in contact with the fly  :grin :grin :grin

Yep the right tackle is all important.......as is the fly, in this case a  Willie Gunn tied on a 2" brass tube borrowed from the guy I was fishing with...... which I had tied and given to him some 30 yrs ago :X2. What goes around comes around  :z13

Nice one Pete! 

Fished middle/upper river today.  Not a sausage!  Very frustrating after feeling like there was every chance of a fish.

Well the river and weather look good for a bit of salmon fishing after work, here is hoping I can land at least one before the season is done.

A dull day, but plenty of colour to see on the river today .........................
