I fished the top deat on the Avon above Tomintoul 2 years ago and will be fishing the Ballindalloch beat of the Avon 1st week in June. If you parents run the hotel, perhaps we'll be able to meet up and have a chat. I'll make sure and bring up a selection of sunrays/variants. My personal email is email@example.com.
Going for a cast on the Teith tomorrow, river's quite low but fresh fish running the river in small numbers.
