    Apparently the file is too big!! Got mine bout 1.30pm, Between then and 2.30pm i would guess atleast 7 hook ups, saw a couple lost, including one where the line snapped and the fella was holding onto the line with the fish on the end!!! Did not last long though and the fish got the better of him!

    probably 10+ at macintoshes, plenty of fish splashing around. including 1 that ran into my zeddie, gave him a hell of a fright, came out of the water about 3feet in the air went for about 6 feet before back in . a spectacular sight. was about 16lb.this was about 3 metres in front of me. wish i had my camera, won’t forget that.

    a few fish around at macintoshs, saw 6 caught between 1.30 and 4.45pm including 2 that i got. strange thing 15 years ago i caught 2 fish on the same day and was late for a first date with a lady who has been my partner since. this time i was given a warning not to be late. she is very understanding of my salmon addiction. has never complained until last weekend when i spent the whole weekend fishing while she sat at home. perfectly justified as i’m on 5 weeks holiday while she works.
