And. . . . . . more salmon


Experienced local angler Robin Thorn has been at it again. This time catching two grilse in Abbotsmead and moving a third half a mile further up river in Nursery pool.  Robin is demonstrating perfectly that even in low water salmon can be caught. These clean fish weighing 4.5 and 5 lbs were taken on an upstream Mepps. (photo to follow) Hopefully Robin’s success will encourage other anglers to have a go.

There is a decent head of school peal in the lower river and most seem to be in excellent condition.
