This past week has seen the number of fresh grilse entering the system continue to increase, with fresh sea liced fish caught throughout the river on all 12 beats. As mentioned last week the condition of these silver torpedoes is outstanding, they are fat and fighting fit with no sign of disease.
The weather has remained unsettled with cooler conditions which has undoubtedly helped in making the fish responsive in taking the fly. The various styles of flies and fishing that has worked this week with surface lures such as hitching, sunrays really coming to the fore for these very active fresh fish, and with loch More full and large numbers of new fish entering on each tide prospects for the rest of July are looking very good.
