Springer Action Today On Newtyle

We saw some running fish in the 'Cottar Pool' this morning at 12 o'clock so Gordon focussed his efforts in 'The Trap' (upstream) to attempt to intercept them. 10 minutes later Gordon hooked one right at the tail of the pool where running fish often stop. This is the fish in this video being coaxed back up from the fast water (where it bolted after being hooked) to the deep calmer water above to be played. Thankfully the fish co-operated as many salmon hooked here take an instant 100 yard run back down into the Cottar which makes life rather interesting !!!! When this happens you wish you'd put your trainers on instead of your waders !!!
