St Valentine's Day Springer

I had an hour's fishing today on the River Dee at Ballogie courtesy of ghillie, Sean Stanton. I started in the Bridge Pool and I didn't have to wait long before my Willie Gunn tube fly was hammered by a strong fish only minutes after starting. It was bar of silver around the 7lb mark which gave a very good account of itself in the cold water.

I also lost another springer in the next pool down which some how managed to throw the hook after a thumping take. Pity it didn't stick but I won't be complaining with landing just the one fish! Hopefully my good start to the season will continue for a wee while longer yet.

7lb of River Dee spring salmon ready to be returned to the water.
