Fishing Hut View Today

Here's Jamie with his pefect 10 pounder seconds before it's release. Superb stuff Jamie !!

Here's a panoramic of the Tail of the Cottar this afternoon. The water is dropping slowly and is down 1 ft from yesterday. I had a nice surpise this morning to learn that a second springer was landed yesterday by Jamie Doubleday in the Cottar Pool at 6pm . The fish took a copper bodied Willie Gunn fished on a full floating line with a 10ft fast tip. He is emailing me the photograph of this lovely 10 lbs sea-liced springer (which was returned) which I'll add to this post shortly. It is Jamie's first springer which he caught on his first day salmon fishing having mastered the snake roll in very windy conditions earlier in the day. What a great start to salmon fly fishing !!!
