Friars Carse Update - 1st October.

An update on last weeks action at Friars Carse, Roger Sandland finished his stay with 4 fish, well done. Peter Vale had a nice clean fish of about 10lb on the fly whilst fishing the tail of the Riding Stone run into the House Pool, Peter also had an encounter with a huge fish estimated over 30lb whilst fishing the worm on the Island Pool, the fish took as soon as the bait hit the water and within minutes was a good 100 yards down river into the head of the Policemans Pool, where it hung abut briefly before a lot of head shaking and eventually snapping the line. Peter caught a glimpse of the fish as it turned on its run downstream.

Last fishing & fly tying course of the year is 11th, 12th & 13th November.

If you need any information about the beat them give me a call.

Dumfries Burgh Report September 2018

September started after a small rise which soon dropped away and most anglers got a fish or two. Lincluden Pools were fishing well wih some good catches – Allan Gray with a fresh 16 pounder, Bill McDavid, Richard Little and I all getting fish. Don't forget Tony Evans with his English worms getting two, one 12 lb. Then we had Storm Ali which brought a lot of tree damage along the river banks. We also had a good flood which cleaned most of the river. When it cleared fish were caught with some notable catches – John Cameron had 5 at the Cape Walk on the Monday, and he had a 12 pounder at Lincluden the next day, Tony Evans again at Lincuden, had a 12 pounder at the College Pool, and I had a 10 lb fish at Carnation Bridge. At the Castleydykes, David Hughes had a very fresh sea liced fish on a small mepp, well done. We have had some early morning frost so we can expect leaves coming down river which can be a nuisance. Let's hope October will be good.

Tight lines.
Catch any fish or any fishy stories give me a ring.
