    Another fantastic week for us at Cairnton and Middle Blackhall with 22 landed which comprised of 16 grilse, all between 3lb & 5lb and all in really good condition, and 6 salmon up to 12lb which were all liced or lice just off. Again just as last week both banks were successful and fairly evenly split in the catches which were spread from top to bottom of the beat and we had quite a lot of half hearted offers as well. 

    Fish were caught on full floaters or floaters with tips and the successful flies of the week included Ally's Shrimps, Brown Pot Bellied Pigs and Cascades between size 6's and 12's. 

    A point that myself and the anglers have noticed this past week, and the previous couple of weeks, is that there were very few fish showing but they were obviously trickling in as fish were caught at all times of the day.

    The water height is 1ft on the Cairnton gauge today and the water temperature is 61f.

    This coming week looks a bit drier with the odd shower and warmer so early mornings should produce a few more.

    We have rods available on Middle Blackhall over the next few weeks and the odd rod available on Cairnton so please check our rod availability page on our website and then get in touch with Sarah to book. Bookings taken 7 days a week and card payments with zero booking fees accepted.

    Cheers Brian

    Another fantastic week
