Springer hooked on the Tube Fly

I had a very clear view of this fish in the later stages of the fight before it said goodbye and was definitely a springer of around 14 pounds. It was going back anyway and provided a good 15 minutes of action on the fly rod just before lunch. This springer took a large Yellow & Orange tube fly at the tail of the Cottar Bay just before lunch. The tail of the bay is a great high water lie as it has a small area of calmer water which provides a resting area when the Tay is huge like it was today. I can't wait to get back out on Monday !!! The Cottar Bay is upstream of the Plain Tree pool and my logic was to then try upstream of where Alan landed his springer at 9.45 am.
