blessing was given by Fiona Armstrong complete
with Sky TV team.
As usual the first boat set off complete with the celebrity, Andrew MacTaggart
and family, ghillied by Robert Simpson. Sadly
little was caught, during their brief excursion,
except rumour has it, the ghillie's thumb, .
It was not long however, before a fish was landed.
The first turned out to be a fighting fit rainbow,
which although it gave a good scap, should not
really have been in the river at all as it was
certainly a fish farm escapee.
A good few kelts were returned from the Kenmore
beat and the first clean fish to be caught was
soon reported coming from the Linn pool. It is
understood that the fish was immediately donated
to the hatchery. Well done all.
