A Springer From The Spey

I had a day on the Tulchan D beat of the River Spey last Saturday. I was fortunate enough to land a cracking fish around the 8lb mark from the March Pool not long after starting fro the day. Unfortunately, that was all the action for the day but it was great to get back in amongst the fish on the River Spey. This was my first Spey salmon for 3 years. Hopefully I won't have to wait so long until the next one!

Nearly there!

A Tay Springer

Last week I had a day on the River Tay at Murthly 2. I was fortunate enough to land a nice salmon around the 6lb mark from the Burn thanks to the expertise of ghillie, Tony Black. My good pal Ade Warburton was also on the score sheet with an absolute beauty of around 12lb from the Tronach. He went out his way to put me onto a fish and we were duly rewarded with this little cracker.
