Salmon started to arrive in the Kenmore/Aberfeldy
area on Saturday 25th September - a bit late,
but we were pleased to see them. A good fish
was lost from the Point
on that day and four more were lost on Monday
and Tuesday from the same pool. Rods on the
beats did a little better. Mr Currie from Moness
took his first ever salmon (11lb) from the Battery
Pool and followed this with a grilse a few minutes
latter. Several more grilse were seen in the
pool that morning. Dr Tomkin from the Boathouse
had a grilse from the Dairy.
Malcolm Abrines had three salmon from the Point,
weighing 18lb, 14½lb and 11½lb
which were all returned. The fish fell to Munro
Killers and an Ally's Shrimp variant. Peter
Bull also fishing the Point took his first ever
salmon of 7lbs on an ally's shrimp.
The river dropped back to a nice height and
we had great expectations for the last few weeks,
which are often the best.
Please note that with one exception - ALL the
above fish were returned unharmed.
