A fine effort in the morning from all the competition winners at Traquair. Simon Innes was first off the mark with a small but perfectly formed lady of the stream. Then FishPal’s very own Mark Cockburn got in on the action, in the capable hands of guide Mike Allen with a lovely conditioned fish around the 40cm mark.
Not to be outdone lady angler Alison Anderson from Newcastle caught another game little fish, tempted by a size 14 pink beaded. Richard Barnes, who’d travelled am impressive distance to joing in the fun – all the way from Suffolk – connected with his first ever Tweed grayling and although it wasn’t the biggest ever seen (okay it was a fingerling) they all count. It’s also great to see a good mix of grayling sizes which bodes well for the future.
Meanwhile, Munro Reid, Mark Hallyburton and Paul Little were further upstream. Mark hooked and lost a couple of fish while Paul experienced the Tweed water temperature a little too closely for comfort.
