Salmon have been scarce on the River Don these past few seasons and this season isn't faring much better but I was delighted to land a nice fish of around 6lb from the Manar beat this afternoon. My good pal, Charlie Robertson also briefly had hold of salmon but it didn't stick unfortunately.
The river was sitting at 4" but it still fished well. It was good to have a Don salmon on the bank again and hopefully there are a few more to come before the season is finished.
