Well, it happened - the 200th fish of the season was caught and released today (September 12). It was taken on the Silver Wells, one of the top producing pools of the year, by one of the top two fish catchers of the year. The fish, a five pound grilse, fell to a Toby wielded by Davie Dyce who, along with Chris Bruce, is on some 30 fish for the season. Andy Massari got fish number 201 with a five pound grilse from the Little Isle.
Weather conditions, with strong, blustery winds and rain showers, discouraged many anglers from venturing forth. But at least water levels have risen and may put fish on the take once newcomers have settled into the river. It's still worth a cast!
