Tina Cummings was the first lady to catch a opening day spring salmon on the River Dee this year a 7lb sea liced springer caught in Pantoch on Invery beat.
Lawrie says ” we are delighted to support women in angling with a river Dee opening day competition. The rod is perfect for women, I have fished the same rod during a recent 3 day fishing trip to the Dee, catching 2 spring fish in excess of 12lb and 20lb. Its a rod that exceeds expectations”
Tina’s success is inspirational to other women thinking of taking up the sport as she picked up a double handed rod just six months ago. She is now totally hooked on salmon fishing and can be found on a Scottish river most weekends casting a line for a bar of silver. Since the start of the 2012 season she has caught 2 spring salmon and numerous kelts.
