8 lbs Springer Landed on Newtyle Today

Here's Donnie Whiteford's fly caught springer just prior to release. This beautiful sea-liced Tay springer was hooked in the neck of the Cottar Pool at around 9.30 am on the deadly 'Park Shrimp' fly. Donnie was up on Newtyle today as part of the Scottish Media Group filming party who are collecting excellent footage from the Tay, Spey, Tweed, Dee & Esk's for their forth coming Autumn series titled 'Salmon Journey'. Today they filmed 2 of the 3 Newtyle springers being played, landed & released amongst other interesting footage. Very well done Donnie & I can't wait now to see the actual programme later this year. Derek King landed a lovely 8 lbs springer up in our Ferry Pool this afternoon which he carefully returned. This was Derek's very first visit to Newtyle so very well done too.
