Hi All. Here are some greetings from a sunny Aberdeen (at least right now).
My fishing in the River Spey on Thursday was ruined by very bad weather condition, rain, hail and half storm made it almost impossible to fish in a sensible way.
On Friday morning me and Mike went to Don, after we fished for a few hours I was lucky enough to hook one of the 10 pounders. (You should not be worried now Mike, I will not tell them what happened after that ..... not yet anyway hahahaha)
Our plan was to fish Don later in the evening but a heavy rain up in the hills did Don full of crap and not possible to fish. As planned John met up on Saturday and we were a little disappointed that river not had got cleared up so we could go fishing as planned. It would appear that it was not until late in the afternoon before we could start our fishing so Mike suggested we pass the time with some handtying in the fishing hut and what could be more classic in than that.
In the evening, John and I had time, however, with a moment of salmon fishing while Mike was too busy to serve us with coffee and other goodies. I had a 'dangler' but otherwise it was not much that happened in the pool except some sea trout which vaulted into the surface a few times.
It was the first time John and I met in real life and I really hope you had as nice time as me under your (too) short stay John. Unfortunately, I had time only to look at a few of the nice wee 'Bob the Builder' books that you so carefully handed over to me;) But seriously, John, thanks once again for all the wonderful stuff you gave me and I really hope that we meet again soon.
And now for Geerty 'Cooperboy' haha ... Now I can certainly understand why Mike loves this wonderful river Don. Tomorrow we go both to the 'crappy' River Dee and the Battle of Aberdeen will continue in earnest again on Tuesday.
I'm sorry for the quality of some of the pictures as they were taken with my mobile phone, River Spey unfortunately killed my best camera at thursday. R.I.P My poor Nikon
I'll might be back with more reports in the coming week.
Tight lines and All the best
