Just off the phone to Ian. He is going to GGACC so he should have a line or two with him.
We are both flying out next Thursday, Ian via Paris, me via Amsterdam. Great planning, but we appear to be leaving and arriving at similer times so can share transport.

I hope we will see Ian's new lines at GGACC.

[QUOTE=Gary W]When I was a student with no money I had to tie flies.
Gary's hit it on the head. Flies are the answer, selling enough pbp's has made the "piggy" bank over flow. I have to get rid of it somehow .
Anyway enough of this cyber talk, I'm off to the river !

When I was a student with no money I had to tie flies for the proprieter in order to get fishing. Even that was on a trout loch; salmon fishing was out of reach until I started working.
Now, all I have to do is find a riparian owner on the Dee, Spey, Tay, Deveron, Don, etc., etc., etc., that is seriously short of salmon flies!!!

Week on the Dee
Gordon: I am curious as to how a poor impoverished student manages a full week on the Dee :. Might be something for me to learn . On the more serious side it is nice to hear that all Scotsmen have not fallen to the charms of the pot bellied pig.
Congratulations on a fine weeks fishing.

Just as well the wedding was in April otherwise you might have been S out of Luck

If they were planning fishing on their honeymoon they really should have organised the wedding for May rather than April as the Balmoral beats fish better in May.
I think that is when Graham Ritchie and mysrelf are fishing on the Royal beats. I hope the SAS are used to dawn till dusk anglers.

Prince Charles and Camilla
Will Prince Charles and Camilla be fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon while on their honeymoon?

Just back from a week on the Dee (Birse). Started off the week fishing large PBP's, to no avail.
It wasn't until a size 10 munro killer was put on that the action started. 3 fish, one after the other were taken, with the total tally for the week reaching 6 with as many lost. All were caught on the munro killer, fished on a floating line with a 5ft sink tip.
Having been fishing mainly pbp's and other shrimp patterns for the last couple of years, it was an eye opener to see such a lightly dressed "wee flee" doing such damage.

Wonderful 3 days on Tulchan B with Alan (thanks for the good advice on his flowers!) what a lovely beat, where else would you want to be on a spring day in Speyside.
1 from Broom Pool on Thursday plus a few all too brief encounters in Stones, Friday blank, 1 Saturday from the Lodge Stream in bright sunshine, 16 degrees C, shirtsleeves at 2pm plus 3 more brief encounters in George and Boat Pool.
Fish were running through most days and we (2 rods) had the beat all to ourselves Thursday and Saturday, but it was tough to rendezvous with the silver tourists and keep them on!
Sorry you initially missed out at Craigellachie, spoke to Peter on Saturday and things had slowed up from the great start to the week. I will be there 20th June for the week hoping to catch the tail of the springers or the start of the grilse.
Alan retires from Tulchan this year, I got the distinct impression talking to him that he would love to carry on till he drops, he will be a great miss next year, some character!

Not a bad week 1 from Craigellachie on Wednesday, and one from Tulchan D on Friday. Delfur had 3 when I was there but nothing personally.
Graham Ritchie has a good story to tell from Delfur today, his brother Michael saved us blanking with his first fish of 2005.
How was your week:?
|03-29-2005 02:14 PM|
Tulchan D on Friday, Delfur on Thursday and Saturday. Don't tell me about Craigellechie, I was offered a rod on there today, turned it down and they had three 2 sealiced. I fished on Orton and never saw a fin, well I landed a 2 lb brown trout, which took me to the backing. Well it was fould hooked in its tail.
Enjoy your days.
