Big Fish bode well for the Future

The opening month on the Tay has seen the capture of some very large spring fish and seems to be putting past gloom about declining returns into perspective. The Tay has always been known as a big spring fish river and it is great news to see them returning.

 
 

This superb springer - 40 inches long and 25lbs was caught with the help of Ernie the Ghillie at Lower Stobhall on the River Tay . The fisherman is Mr Simon Brown a guest at The Tayside Hotel"

 

28 lber taken by Harry Camp from the Loch on opening Day. We have also had reports that Bill Hill a prominent guide from the west end has been doing rather well.... 8 fish since the opening day with the best to 20lb. Commander Len Jones from Blairgowrie had his first fish of the season at 24.5 lb. Graham Butler and his party caught and returned a clean 6lb clean run hen fish,

 

It is also worth noting that the size of kelts being seen and returned have also been larger than in recent years. Jim Mundell returned two kelts of around 25lb each in successive casts, while the Aberfeldy club watched a male in fish (rawner) working in the shallows in January estimated to be 40lb+!

 

Three spring fish have already been donated to the Almondbank hatchery project and are reported to be doing well. Long may the improvements continue so that more anglers can enjoy the thrill of a fish of a lifetime.
