Who's heading out tomorrow?

The river looks in good shape. Hopefully the cold start will be worth it!

Fished an ADAA beat on Friday, and unfortunately witnessed some of the worst behaviour by "fellow anglers" that I have seen.

Without names or membership numbers they cannot be reported.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

In my club, we will remind people every year. If you can't control yourself, please leave. I think it should be part of your annually news letter.

Regards,

Mark

What happened Rob?

Last season it became clear that even with names and membership numbers certain individuals were above the law.

hi Rob,

Not good. 
I would in any case report any misbehaviour to secretary@adaa.org.uk  - stating time, location, description of incident and of anglers.  I know from my committee stint that we would sometimes get such reports  from a couple of sources, or sometimes committee members or beat conveners had been out and about, and cross referencing  helped  to identify  miscreants. No one likes telling tales, but the club rules are there to be respected.

I will stick a fiver on the incident being at Cothal.

I've only just rejoined the ADAA having taken a few years off but Cothal could sometimes be a bit of a mare with some of the older heads.

I've stuck to the Ythan so far this season,

Wasn't my attempts at casting a double hander was it  :oops Went somewhere quite as well so no one could complain about my (lack of) technique.
In all seriousness complain, I saw a few things last year that pissed me off but didn't do anything about it but will do this year.

Fished a middle Don beat on Friday.The water was coloured with snow melt so tried a wee spinner for Salmon.
This is my fourth after work session and I have yet to see or catch a Salmon kelt.
It appears that there is a lack of Salmon kelts throughout the Don which suggests a very poor spawning season.

On the plus side,i have picked up four seatout kelts so far, which might suggest that the seatrout run was good last season.I certainly hope so!

My two kelts from Friday.One of which is remarkably well mended for so early in the season.The other fairly typical.
