I attended a meet at Tulchan C on the River Spey a few weeks ago which was organised by my good friend Bill Cook. There were 9 of us in attendance with 3 rods fishing on B beat. Conditions on the day were not the best for salmon fishing with bright sun in a cloudless sky but the water levels were good for the beat at 6" on the gauge.
Despite the overhead conditions the salmon didn't seem to mind as my pal Philip black landed two cracking fish which were both around the 16lb mark. One of which he caught on the Friday before we arrived. Both fish were in tip top condition and gave Philip a fair old scrap before he managed to land them.
The River Spey has been fishing pretty well at the moment with some large salmon coming off on a daily basis. It truly is a stunning part of Scotland and one which I never tire of visiting and it was great to be back at Tulchan again. I'm looking forward to my next visit whenever that may be but hopefully that time won't be too far off.
