As reported, Inverness Angling Club’s water enjoyed a really successful day on Wednesday (August 8). And club president Graham Mackenzie has been quick to congratulate anglers. He said: “A fantastic day…with 15 salmon/grilse reported and confirmed as caught. Great credit to those who had success as all 15 were returned. Absolutely brilliant that the majority of members appear to be happy to return fish, something that was considered outrageous not many years ago.”
The grilse run has been particularly good but, as always, these fish come with ups and downs. Today (Thursday) catches went down - just six were caught although fish were still showing in the pools and some bigger specimens were landed. Davie Dyce had three, including a 10 pounder on fly from the Black Stream and a 12 pounder from the Legion on a Devon. Up on the Weir Pool, Scott McCarthy had a cracking fish of 13lbs on the fly. Chris Bruce got in among them again with two five pounders from the Silver Wells. Visitor James Buchanan had another from the MacIntyre before returning south.
A cracker!: Weir success for Scott
