Nice afternoon at Ardlethen escaping the haar at the coast. Wind a bit of a nightmare at times though, esp with a glass rod. Lots of wee brownies rising - a couple of rises to a CDC emerger but nothing hooked.  Wet flies and a carbon rod for the end of the week methinks  :X2

Cracking troots Duncan  :z16

They don't seem to be heading out of the salt and up river at the minute. Strange considering the Don is extremely low yet the sea trout are already at Kintore and Ardmurdo  :z8 :z8

On a positive note the Ythan seems stuffed with parr. My last 2 visits i have been plagued by them.

Probably best fishing the river under cover of darkness concentrating on the deeper pools.
There might be the odd fish creeping upstream.

Had a couple of fish off the Estuary tonight.They seem to be in great condition this year.
I was watching the terns returning to their nests with their bills packed with sand eels.No doubt the trout will be enjoying the sand eels too.
