May as well start as opening day has arrived. Tight lines for those brave enough to give it an early bash

A bonnie first day of the salmon/ST season but far too cold today for me :(

Itís another day closer to March 15th though, when the real fishing starts :)

Hi all, I wanted to book a day for 2 rods on the Kildrummy beat in April - nothing on FishPal, no response to an email to the Kildrummy Inn and no answer to the phone number supplied on the Kildrummy Inn website - any suggestions?

Thanks

Colin

Thanks  Mike - done that now...

On an other point - I had a day on the Culquich beat last year - we only had time to fish below the bridge that takes you over to the house down to the pool where the Kindy burn comes in (I had a nasty fall in the river and had to cut the trip short, I just wondered if any one had any experience of the river above the bridge up the the Bucket corner, where it's best to park etc. Any info/experience would be gratefully received.

Tough going so far, 1 sea trout kelt. Absolutely worth being out after a long winter break though! The fish seem to be holding in different areas this year.

Bit of a change to the weather today at Upper Parkhill. Cold and windy.

Not much showing, although I had a fair amount of interest in a 15g Toby in the Fae Me Well pool (where the first ADAA Springer of this season was caught I think?). An out of season but beautifully coloured brownie took the lure for two acrobatic cartwheels but then came off.

edging closer. Looking out of the upstairs window, I can see the Don at Fintray blowing upstream in exactly the way it shouldn't ;-)
Don't you just love spring weather. Walk the dogs most days along the Don around midday. No signs yet of any fly life where I have been, so it feels like it might be quite a slow start this season.

Still, it'll be good to get out and rediscover all the holes in my waders that I haven't thought aboot fixing

Looks like the first day of the 2022 trout season on the Don is going well for Stevie Corsar  :)
