    7 down the mouth today, 4 at the macs in the morning from another fisherman and 1 on the boat this evening. Saw one lost as well. Not much fish activity saw about 3 rises but one was a trophy fish well over 20 lb. Water had better colour for fishing after the rain.

    well done. a survey a few years ago came to the conclusion that the average salmon fisher caught 0 in a season, therefore if you catch one you are a expert. need to watch out ,it becomes an addiction. iv’e had for salmon about 23 years. trout were the addiction as a kid until 17 when there was another addiction until i married then back to the fishing.
