Dear Angler - Via Michael Koch


The last four weeks have seen more spring salmon caught over the 20lb barrier on the fly in Scotland and England. Anglers are seeing more fish, with reports from the weekend of sea trout starting to arrive in the Border Esk, Annan, Nith, Tay and Ayrshire rivers. Last week a specimen sea trout of 24lb was caught on the Don, you can read more about it in this months newsletter.


We can now share with you the full story of Tom Buchanan's fish, the first FishPal Malloch Trophy entry of 2015. Tom contacted our offices last month and when we heard his story we telephoned our colleagues at the Trout & Salmon Magazine and gave them this exclusive scoop.

If you are planning a fishing trip this week the Teviot is at a good height and colour, whilst middle and upper beats on Tweed are well worth a cast. The Annan is holding its height well and the river's temperature is just topping 9-10+ Celcius. For trout anglers there are some good hatches of Blue Dunn on the Annan. Levels and prospects are encouraging for those anglers casting a line on the North and South Esk. We would recommend you check the - latest fishing reports on the river you would like to fish, or contact Tom in the office on 01573 470612 who can help to arrange your trip.

With conditions on many rivers looking promising, there is ample affordable spring fishing for salmon and trout - find fishing.

Keep sharing your stories and photographs with the team at FishPal and who knows, like Tom, your story could appear in the Trout & Salmon magazine. You can email Denne e-mail adresse bliver beskyttet mod spambots. Du skal have JavaScript aktiveret for at vise den. or contact us on 01573 470612.
