Oh no, will be in Stafford wrapping thread, fur n feather round shaped bits of metal wire so sadly will miss the march this year.  Hope the weather's good and you get a decent turn out Mike.  :z16

 A photo oh the Barley pot yesterday. A fair old difference in the flow since the floods  much more to the rurie side and seems a better pool for it hopefully.

Yes, it will be interesting to see how the river has changed once the water levels drop back to normal 'ivdffs'.

Cheers

I know it's out of season and not on the fly but I couldn't resist a quick photo!  :z16

Not a bad fish for a cold day in February when the silver things were nowhere to be seen.  :cool:



Next time I'll remember to pack my sink tips  :X1 :X2

Is there anything happening on the Don ?  Is everywhere  quiet ?

 I fished opening day and saw two sea-liced  salmon come in  about 50  yards away from me .  Been down a few times since then but not a sausage ........

What's  the guy down the pub saying ? What's the street talk ?

Only been out twice so far and had a kelt each time at Inverurie but not seen a splash. Only heard of the fish at Kemnay AC water on opening day so far, early days so can only get better!

Not even had a kelt  , think the floods must have cleared a lot of them out .     Also had some hungry trout take my big fly .

It can only get better ...............
