Great to see catches spread amongst the anglers today. Top rod today was that old angler from Fife Neil MacLellan with three fish of 12lb-12lb and 8lb. Two fish on shrimp patterns and one on spinner.I was taken aback this morning when that old tobacco tin was not to be seen!. Instead an old plastic box had taken its place which seemed to spring open voluntarily and I am sure an Ally Shrimp went for a swim unattached. I was told the old tobacco tin was laid to rest following a severe bout of rigour rust and had I any replacements. Gordon Nichol continued his success with two fish of 11lb and 12lb both on Willie Gunn. Alan Greene was also in on the action with the best of the day at 14lb on shrimp fly. Charlie McGhee ( Sirriousblack ) got his second in two days with an 12lb fish on Gold Toby. With the figures showing through the dam I think a big proportion of the fish arriving are being caught. Sawmill produced two today with an 8lb fish for Ally Gowans early in the morning and tonight a beautiful sea-licer of 11lb for Innes Smith.  JK
