Yes, Duncan, the ADAA beats on the Ythan including their new Schivas beat are all cut and ready and waiting for hopefully,  the Autumn run of fish. The Schivas beat will be a new experience for many of the members who I am sure will take full advantage of this new fishery.

That's great news Paul.

Water is up a wee bit but might be just enough to get a few fish to run upstream.

Not the bar of silver i was looking for but hopefully this good sized cock seatrout will be back guarding his Redd.
He certainly swam straight back to where i'd hooked him after release, suggesting that this was his territory!

Seem to be a few about now Duncan. I headed south on Monday and had another blank  :.

But I managed a couple hours on Tuesday afternoon on the Ythan. Nothing all year then 2 in ten minutes and a cracking fresh finnock  :z18


I won’t  feel so bad now if I blank with the Salmon    *smiley-grin*

Well done Ivor,I knew you would do well once you had got to know the beats. :z16

Still time to save blanking with the Salmon.There's not many on the go but you just never know when a taker will arrive.

Things are looking pretty grim on the Salmon front so thank goodness for these wee silver beauties

Started off fishing for Salmon on a middle beat but soon lost interest and decided to head upstream with the trout rod.
The water had risen the day before and i was hopeful that there might have been a good run of finnock.
Thankfully,the fish were there and i had a lovely afternoon's fishing.












First finnock of the day
