1st Springer off Newtyle

Here's a short video of Alan Wade playing his 16 pounder (& first ever Springer) from the boat at 9.45 this morning. The fish took a pearly pink tomic lure and gave a fair account of itself. This springer was hooked in the Plain Tree Pool on Newtyle in front of Willie Laird's memorial bench. It just shows you that old Laird is still at large !!!!!! Next week should be well worth a go with this class of spring salmon now in the Tay.
