Murthly on Tay 7th April 2017

Donald’s comment on the conditions: “If you arrived to fish at this time of year and got these conditions you would think you had won the lottery!” Water 1ft 1ins on Tony’s gauge, 45 degrees, mild and slight cloud, light breeze. So we fished furiously all day for not so much as a pull… until […]

Murthly Castle on Tay 6th April 2017

Perfect water height and lovely fishing conditions. Seen several fish but other than one on for about 3 or 4 minutes on a fly from the boat on the upper water, absolutely nothing to show for our efforts. Strange game this!

David Monk checks out…

I am very sad to have to report that David Monk finally passed away yesterday (19th June) at the age of 94. David will be well known to many of my fishing friends and pupils as he was a regular at Upper Caberston and my Murthly Castle Scottish salmon courses and came on many of my overseas trips. […]

One day Trout Course 25th March 2017

What a cracking day!  Bright sun and a gusty east wind should have rather spoiled our chances, but mid morning saw the first serious hatch of Alder and the trout were going mad for them. Some big fish too as you can see from the pics. Well done to all who took part and particularly […]

Trout Season opens.

Don’t you just love the weather! Week before opening day and there is 18 degrees, warm sunshine, frogs spawning all over the lakes and the first serious fly hatches whilst we stocked the lakes. Then on opening day winter returns with driving wind and rain almost all day. Nevertheless two of the rods braved the […]

Happy Christmas

The salmon have run, the season is done, the rods all put neatly away. Not much left to do, other than re-whip and glue, line loops and leaders all frayed. Then sit at my vice, trying to tie something so nice that it earns a place in my box but most lack the lustre to even begin to […]

East Ranga, Iceland trip 2016

How would you describe what a perfect few fishing days should be like?  Nice fishing conditions but challenging at times? The fishing not too easy and so all the more rewarding when success comes through putting in the effort and searching the water? The chance of not only a nice run of Grilse but some bigger fish too? Well East […]

Iceland East Ranga August 1st 2016

Nice fishing day, overcast and mild. We struggled on beat 2 with just 1 grilse for a lot of hard work, but we did see a good run of fish come past. They obviously stopped in beat 3 (ravens Rock) because Cecil D managed 5 and Eric W 2 With 4 fish from beat 3 […]
