Anne Woodcock our Marketing Director is on Tweed for the opening day. Hopefully with the thaw setting in now, the river may be fishable by Friday although the forecast is not good with wind and showers forecast, but apart from 8mm rain forecast on Monday and 10mm on Tuesday, showers are the norm for the rest of the week, so being ever the optimist lets hope for good news for opening day. Keep an eye to the forecasts.
At the same time FishPal CEO Mark Cockburn is on the Dee which also opens on the same day.
May we wish all anglers on the Tweed; Border Esk; Brora; Dee; Forth and Teith and wherever else I may have forgotten which open their salmon season on the 1st February. Tight lines everyone.
