First Fish on the Fly!

The first fly caught salmon of the season was landed this morning by Les Dargie - an 8lber from the tail of Sawmill. Even more impressive was the fact that Les managed to land the fish without the aid of a net - no mean feat on the narrow bank in that part of the beat. With two further fish reported as hooked and lost things are picking up at last. Prospects look excellent for the week ahead with the river set to fall further.
