Latest from Friars Carse

My self and 9 other colleagues arrived on Monday, with the river running at a nice height for the fly. Salmon had been seen in the Farm Pool by one of the group early in the day. Fishing styles was mainly split towards the single handed rods for sea trout & browns with grayling in the catch whilst 2 of us stuck solely to salmon during the day. I hooked and landed a lively 7.5lb fish on the Riding Stone pool, quick photo then safely back on its way. Mike the other salmon angler lost one in the same pool 2 days later.


Sea Trout to just over 2lb were amongst the catch along with browns to around 2lb, grayling to just over a pound, these fish were the most prolific.


Its been a long time since I have seen as many salmon showing throughout all the pools from Farm Pool right down to Policemans and all seemed to be nice clean bright fish.


If you get time or fancy a change of venue the beat is well worth a go.


There are still a couple of spaces left on the November Fly Fishing Course, contact me for more information. Ian Griffin, APGAI/GAIC Instructor on 07760884450 or email [email protected]
