A Springer From Manar Tonight

Just like buses, two springers come along in quick succession!

My friend and fishing buddy Charlie Robertson had a few hours on the Manar beat of the River Don after his work today. About 9pm he landed this 8lb sea-liced fish on a Sunray Shadow from the Sheep Pool. He informed me that the fish hammered the fly on the surface and it put up a cracking fight! The fish was returned (All Don fish must be returned before 1st June) and swam off strongly to continue it's journey. Good to see the Don is starting to produce fish in good numbers at last. About time! Here are the pictures sent to me this evening.

Well Done Charlie!
