I’ll echo that

It’s been a great event to be a part of. Thank you all very much for the opportunity  :z18

It was Castle Forbes for my last day of the Don 8 event.

With heavy rain the day before I made an early start in an attempt to beat the rising water.

Unfortunately the water was coloured and looked like it was already rising so I just had to make the most of it, mind you with scenery like this I can think of worse ways to spend a day… :z16

This was my first time at Forbes, the dirty water made it difficult to see how deep the pools were so it was a bit of guess work trying to find the fish. Using nymphs with various coloured heads I worked my way up the pools. I connected with my first trout around 8:30 tucked tight into my own bank.

There is a lot of water to cover so I fished through the pools quickly.

I connected with another fish in the margins, but this one was a good bit bigger…

A deep solid lump :z16

I had another small one 10 mins after and that was it for the day.

So another cracking beat, I was well chuffed to catch another biggie in rising, coloured water. A great way to end a great event  :z16
