Prospects

(Last updated: Sunday 17th June)

The week ended with the level at Sprouston 9" and the water temperature is 60.


Looking at the availability for this coming week I would recommend the Dryburgh Lower and Upper Beats, Lower Birgham, Ladykirk, Horncliffe and Tweedhill beats should have a chance of some action this week, if there is any rise in water Upper North Wark at £25 per rod per day could be a good shout.


The forecast this coming week, Tuesday looks to be rather unsettled, with showers or longer spells of rain, some of this could be on the heavy side, particularly overnight. Cloudy for the most part on Wednesday with a mixture of showers and drier interludes. High pressure is expected to build in on Thursday, allowing for a return to largely dry and settled conditions.

As always I would like to thank all those who provide me with the information to make this report, it is very much appreciated. If you have any information or photo's you would like included please get in touch with Martin on 07825334427 or info@taysalmonfly.co.uk


With water levels finally starting to drop in and water temperatures starting to rise Floating lines with poly leaders on the end should cover most fishing conditions at the moment. Dressed flies around a size 10 to 12 should be the order of the day, I would suggest are Copper Cascade, Stenton Shrimp, Gledswood Shrimp, Kylie Shrimp, Editor and Sunray Shadow should bring success. If you like to give the spinner a go, Rapala, Toby or Flying C should bring results.

As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie. If you're needing to top up your fly box ahead of your trip please check out www.taysalmonfly.co.uk
