The monsoon season up here may be challenging for gardening, but it's been a great few weeks for salmon fishing....

I've had 4 and lost a couple. All fresh fish in great nick between 5lb and 8lb. Some rivers getting their best July run for a long time up here. I kept the one with the wading stick beside it for smoking. Rest went back. Rivers are now too big after 2 inches of rain yesterday and flooding in places. Humid and drizzly today, good for nothing except potato blight I fear.....

Tight lines wherever you are.

Lovely fish, Mark!

What a privilege to fish a salmon river.
Thanks. It's quite a 'democratic' sport up here on most rivers and beats. I have three rivers I fish fairly regularly. One is five minutes walk from my house on local club water, which costs all of £60 a season. It's a bit of a jungle on the banks at times, and can get quite busy in the more accessible bits, but can always find a quieter bit.

I pay a bit more for the second one, which is about 45 miles away, but still pretty good value and only 14 of us in the syndicate with about 7 miles of water in the glorious Galloway hills. We can take a guest and sell day tickets for one beat too.

My 'Rolls Royce' fishing is in a syndicate where we co own the fishing on a couple of miles of the River Doon about twenty miles away from me. We have a full time keeper there for the season, so it's not as cheap, but very well maintained and the fishing can be superb I've had 3 salmon over 20lb on it in recent years. Overall, it costs me about the same as a season ticket at a big football club, or membership of a good golf club.

Worzel’s mother’s family come from south west Scotland.  We had quite a few holidays (often moist) up there.

He was hooked on fishing as a wee boy when his aunty bought him a wee rod an to him to the local river where he caught a mackerel   :lol: :lol: :lol:   No prizes for guessing how it got on his hook.  All the fishermen on the bank admired his fish and told him what a clever wee man he was.

More than the fish was hooked that day.
