The start of another season!
We had a lovely day to start the season with no wind, a frost on the ground and blue sky. The morning started with Piper Alistair Miller leading the assembled anglers and guests across the bridge and down to the Comlifoot pool. The first cast, this year, was made by Alex Parramore who has been a regular fisher on the Thurso for over 50 years. Alex was also the Guest Speaker at the Fishing dinner held at the Ulbster Arms Hotel the night before and spoke of his passion, not only of Salmon angling but of the River Thurso and the great variety of water that it has. Thank you Alex, guest and the Ulbster arms for a great evening.
There were a good number of rods out , but no fresh fish today, but a good number of well mended kelts were taken.
Lets see what 2018 will bring us, tight lines to you all.
