Week comm 18th Aug
Another excellent week for all beats. 44 salmon and grilse were landed on Beats 1-4 with many more from the club water. The continued high water redistributed fish throughout the system and encouraged many fresh salmon and grilse to run. This coupled with almost Autumnal weather provided good fishing conditions. It will come as no surprise that 35 of the 44 fish landed were taken by the Newbould party(s). Having taken 2 beats this year, Malcolm opted to make Graham Ritchie captain of team B. Graham’s recruitment policy was clearly well thought out. They accounted for 26 fish up to 18lbs. His brother Michael landing almost of 50% of these. A great result! Malcolm and team had 9 with Alan Williams recording 4 and new Lochy recruit Dave Sadowski landing 3. Emma Jackson’s team managed 7. Biggest was a fresh run 18lber for Jon Gibb. Imogen Singer and party added a couple of lovely fresh grilse. With a full August week still remaining I am hopeful we can get close to the 2011 total. That said it looks like the weather will be sunny for the next few days so conditions maybe more testing than last week. Tides are building all week.
