14 year old Frank Cottons 28lb fish caught at Sprouston during this week has to be applauded – being the largest springer recorded on the river for a considerable number of years. The fish was a fraction short of 45″ long and well proportioned in the girth, was netted by Frank’s father who weighed it at 28 lb 5 oz’s on a set of digital scales. Frank had a titanic battle with the fish as it made many downstream runs – it didn’t show on the surface for around 40 minutes – before it was netted some 55 minutes after it was hooked. Although Frank is only a young chap, he is fast becoming a seasoned salmon fisher with a fair number of fish to his name – mainly caught on the fly – and on this occasion the fish took his size 8 Red Ally’s Shrimp. After pictures were taken, in line with the rivers C&R rules, the fish was successfully returned. Well done Frank. See Bill Stanworth’s weekly report for further news about this week.
- Just wanted to share this magnificent fish from the Teviot caught on 18/10/2018 on a yellow Monkey bottle tube. Craig was using his 10ft trout rod as he was on the upper river and with the conditions being as they were he really didn't fancy his chances of catching any fish. He didn't weigh it as I wanted to get it back asap but it was around 42-46" in length. Craig said "Tweed ghillie friend guestimates it around the 26lb mark. But who cares" #fishpal #fishing #flyfishing #salmon #scotland #visitscotland #scottishborders3 days fishing 7 fish caught, lost another 7 and 3 at 24lb 27lb and 30lbs Birgham Dub, River Tweed.

Rivers Tungufljot, Vatnsa, Geirlandsa, Grenlaekur, Varma, Litlaa, Brunna, Eyjafjardara and many more rivers in Iceland offer crystal clear water and fantastic sea trout fishing. The sea trout fishing normally starts in late August and continues into early October although I would recommend fishing during September month. All the fishing is done on private water with 2-6 rods allowed to fish at the same time. You are fishing daily for 10-12 hours and sometimes you will enjoy the northern lights while fishing into the darkness. Pricing is very reasonable and will cost from £150 per rod/day without any lodge accommodation involved . . Jon Sigurdsson . 🌐 www.fishiceland.com . Ⓜ️firstname.lastname@example.org .

This would put it at 43-45lbs in weight. As it was windy I had put up the 14 Sage. It was on a size 12 Stoats Tail fished slowly over the lies about half way down the pool. The net is a 30 gye net which gives some perspective of the size🐟🎣🐟 . . ☎️ (+44) 01573 470612 . .
