I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time today on the River Don as I managed to land 3 grilse and lose another. As well as this, I had a few offers from fish which didn't hook up unfortunately but I can't complain. I didn't see many fish today but they were certainly in the mood to take a fly. All fish were released safely and quickly.
