Tight Lines to all fishers on the Dee tomorrow.
Hopefully it will be another cracker of a season and plenty of nice springers about.
All The Best

|Some Snaeldas and Francis style flies.|
|The Gold Willie Gunn. What more can I say!|
|Sunray Shadows and Conn's Sunrays. Conn's work well on the Don in April/May.|
|My favourite fly for the Spring. The Dee Fox.|
|My first attempts at Intruder style flies.|
|A handful of Green Highlander cone heads. Nerver had a fish on one but im going to give these a good try in the spring.|
|A selection of Monkey flies tied on assorted tubes. Some tied using raccoon dog hair which looks amazing in the water.|
|A 12lb Springer from Lower Blackhall caught in mid March by my good friend Charlie Robertson. The fish took a 1" Gold Willie Gunn from the Sheep Dip Pool.|
|11lb early morning July fish from Knappach. Caught by my Uncle. The fish took a small Cascade from the Birkenbaud pool.|
|A 34inch Hen Salmon from the Mill Pool at Cambus O May in mid August. The fish took a size 12 Calvin's Shrimp at the neck of the pool in the fast water. After a quick pic, like all the fish I catch it went back safely.|
|15lb Cock Salmon from the Manse Pool, River Don. The fish took a 1" Red Francis tube on a fast sink tip.|
|A 10lb back-end salmon from Cocker's Pool caught early October.|
