    This week was testing conditions. With low & clear water we could see fish holding in certain pools, but the fish werent taking any notice.  

    On Monday evening I managed to landed a fresh 4lb grilse from the Cottage Run using a size 14 Silver stoat.

    The Second half of the week the river has risen.

    Fingers crossed for the following week.

    Seeing fish but couldn’t get a pull. I managed to catch a 3lb sea trout from the Spout using very light tackle & size 16 stoat on Tuesday.

    Bill Hannan caught a fresh grilse 4lb from Glisters on a size 14 stoats tail. 

    On Friday Bob Kenyon landed a lovely  4lb grilse from the Cottage Run on a size 14 Red Francis.
