Tomorrow is the opening day on the Spey, so loads of guys will be out fishing in the snow and or rain.
Going to have a bbq at the river, and a drink or two, then later on another drink or two , well it is traditional, thats my excuse.
The river is at a good height so there is a good chance of a springer or two. :)

A Toast

I raise my glass (Guiness Extra Stout) and toast the anglers on the river Spey.

May your irons connect in the corner of the mouth.

Salute'.

The river is 2'11" and falling on the gauge at Aberlour this morning, with a light sou'westerly breeze and not much chance of rain - couldn't be nicer!

Don’t tease, I have to wait until Monday until I get to wet a line on the Spey.

I will be thinking of you all whilst I am sitting in an ecology lecture at college this afternoon.

And I'm not up 'til Weds & Thurs next week. By then no doubt the river will have risen, there'll be half a gale & blizzards from the north east and Graham, Malcolm and you will have caught them all between you! :mad:

Still can't wait, though. :)

There was 5 fish taken. 2 from the Brae Water( bottom beats) 1 from Orton(next beat up) 1 from Aberlour Asociation Water and 1 from Knockando Foyness beat.
The fish from Aberlour was killed and donated to the old persons home a long standing tradition.

The low temps seem to be holding the fish back.

My team has so far let me down any alternatives for next year please forward your CV.
