The river's a great colour and height at the moment so well worth a go Sandy.

Fished for a couple hours tonight but saw nothing which is unusual for our beat at this time of year.

The river looked tremendous tonight following the latest wee rise in water level.
The water was carrying a tinge of colour so tied on a small Ally's tube and within minutes of starting fishing had a Hen fish in the net.
Following my early fish,i had high hopes of further success but two hours later,having seen or touched nothing else,i realised that i must have been lucky to get that fish.
Either the fish are keeping their heads down or they are simply not there in any number.

Plenty of trout rising today getting a last feed before they start to spawn.Some big ones amongst them :z16

Hi John

Most of my shots are beats other than the ADAA as Iím not a member. I do fish Inverurie, ardmurdo, monymusk,  fetternear and various other upper beats throughout the year and  I rarely meet many folk out and about.
You will find plenty lovely water that you can park close too. So have fun exploring and donít be afraid to move around beats to find feeding fish.

Best wishes

Sandy
