Another busy day on the Ness club water saw 15 fish being caught with Chris Bruce outperforming everyone by landing seven fish - three from the MacIntyre, three from the Silver Wells and one from the the Mill Stream. A busy boy indeed! His fish ranged in weight from four to seven pounds, all of which were released. Donald MacPherson had a double, an eight pounder from the MacIntyre and a 3.5lb fish from the Mill Stream. Visitor James Buchanan also made it two for the day with fish from the Little Isle and the Silver Wells.
Local angler Jamie Urquhart, fishing on a day ticket, was a happy laddie with a three pound grilse from the MacIntyre while long term club member Martin Nelson had a four pounder from the same pool. Walter Ridley, an associate member from Hull who spends a fortnight on the river each month of the season, opened his account with a three pounder from the Little Isle. His natural smile will be even wider now! Tony Quinn had a five pounder from the Legion Pool. The biggest fish of the day were nine pounders caught and released by Chris from the MacIntyre and James Buchanan from the Little Isle.
Safely released: Chris sends a seven pound salmon on its way
Careful now!: Bill Byers prepares to net Walter's fish
