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.

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.
Ramsay

Ramsay, I'm curious how a full time salmon fisher claims to be a student, in my day we had to attend college.

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!!!

I hope you have your Blue Charms, silk line and tin of Mucilin looked out for tomorrow Malcolm.

[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 !

I eventually managed to catch my Cairnton salmon. Unfortunately it fell to the charms of a Brass Willie Gunn on an Ian Gordon intermdiate, but I'm sure Mr Wood would not have minded too much.

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.
