    This was a week with two halves. The first part of the week was good with 3 fish on the Monday. Then the rising river, carrying a lot of colour killed it . But we had two salmon & two grilse 

    Two from the Cairnton, a 5lb grilse for myself using a t10 tip with a sunray. Mike Kimber caught a 10lb from Grey mare using a 10ft fast sink tip & a size 8 cascade. 

    Over at blackhall Andy Ashcroft caught a fish from the Malt steep using a fast tip with a Alistair copper tube. Owen duff caught a 5lb from the Malt steep using a 7ips tip and copper willie Gunn. Sadly it went very quiet the rest of the week. 

    Fingers crossed we catch a few more over then next Couple of days

    This was a productive week from new faces on the beat, with 10 salmon, 2 grilse & 4 sea trout.

    On Monday I met Alex Buchan & his party who were fishing both banks. The team were staying in the Fishers cottage for the week. My advise was fish deep with t14 & big flies as the water temperature had dropped. I advised to fish the last hr of light.

    A good fly at this time of year is a Francnsnaelda on heavy signature tube, sunray shadow. My advice was to get the fly down & tickle the nose’s of the fish. Everyone in the party got on the scoresheet.

    Mr B Lewis caught the biggest fish & the most fish for his week with 4 salmon & a seatrout. The biggest being a 16lb cock fish from the south bank at the Cairnton stream using a extra super fast sink tip and a 14mm Francnsnaelda. 

    Ben Davies caught two cracking fish using a T14 tip junction shrimp & a 2” green sunray shadow  from the Grey mare. 

    Host Sandy Buchan caught a salmon 13lb from Glisters and a 5lb grilse from Grey mare on a super fast sink tip with a Size 8 orange Ally shrimp and a 2” sunray.  

    With the season end fast approaching I have fished as much as I can, as we are close to my overall target for the beat. I landed 2 fish for the week at 19.00. The biggest being around the 15lb mark, from the Grey mare using a heavy tip T18 and a big Sunray. 

    I hope this rise of water pulls a few fish up from the beats below.

    This was a frustrating week with the unsettled water levels & seeing plenty of fish, but we still managed 4 salmon & 1 grilse plus a 2lb seatrout.

    Monday I met up with Mike Richardson who was fishing for the week plus Michael Botham and his friend Jonathan who were fishing for 3 days.  Michael lost a fish on a skated sunray. Unfortunately that’s all the sport that they had. 

    On Thursday I had Christian brogaux from Switzerland who didn’t speak a word of English so I had a Challenge on my hands explaining lines flies etc. I realised quite quickly that waving my arms around wasn’t working. Thank goodness for google translator. On Thursday Christian hooked a 12lb hen fish in the Grey mare  using an extra superfast sink tip, 1” Red pot belly pig. After a few pictures she was on her way. 

    Mike Richardson was very unlucky with the weather again this season. But he managed a 2lb sea trout from the Old garden run. 

    It was nice catching up with Richard and Ken from the Isle of Man. Sadly no joy but both still left the beat with a smile. 

    Over at Middle Blackhall I met up with Simon Boyden and his two friends who were fishing for the 3 days starting on Thursday. Sadly the river was big at 3’9 and carrying some colour., But over night the river dropped and Simon caught two salmon 6lb & 9lb from the Malt steep using an extra superfast sink tip with a heavy tube fly. 

    Saturday Simon caught a 7lb from the malt steep on a black and orange snelda. Derek got a 4lb fish in Invercannie on a cascade conehead. 

    We seen plenty of fish so let’s hope we get a few this coming week.
