Stop-press Club member Gordon Nichol gave himself and Portnacraig Pitlochry Beat a great start to the season with a magnificent springer estimated from measurements of its length and girth to be about 21 lb. It was caught on a yellow and black tube fly on Pitlochry bank at the Moulin Burn mouth just after noon and carefully released.

The capture was witnessed by fellow club members Iain McLaren (who netted the fish) and Ross Gardiner (who took photos and helped measure the fish).
Well done Gordon!
