Latest from Ian Neale, Altyre Estate


Fishing has really picked up on the Findhorn over the last two weeks.  A highlight came last week when we welcomed Randolph Gordon from the USA, on his first ever Spring salmon fishing trip to Scotland on the Findhorn last Friday/Saturday.  He managed to hook and lose his first fish from the tail of Garden pool on Friday! Old trout fishing habits got the better of him!


However, it all came good for him on Saturday under the careful eye and instruction of Ali, with two cracking fresh Spring fish, one of around 9lbs from the tail of Garden pool on Altyre lower beat and then a second of around 10 lbs from the top of Roan pool on Altyre lower beat.


I mean, what a day at any time, but two sea liced “Springers” for a complete novice, in one day, in April, takes a lot of beating!!
