    Thanks SS. Yes it was cold on Friday night. Thanks indeed to all the proprietors for allowing this innovative experience to happen.
    If only the Tweed proprietors would learn a thing or two!

    I was told there was six sea trout caught in total between the 19 groups.

    I was on Middle Drumlanrig and the report is on the nith thread in river reports.

    Will be heading to lower Dalswinton shortly, report will be on the nith thread tomorrow.

    How has everyone being doing on the 'Sea Trout Experience'? I have been lucky enough to fish almost every week, except last Friday of course. I have only managed to lose 2 fish, both on Lower Buccleugh (Boatford?). Beautiful bit of water that is kept for salmon fishing for the guests of the Duke, but a sea-trout ticket is available for 20/evening.

    Best bit of water, as a beat, that I have fished for the first time is definitely Blackwood Estate. After the tragic death of my good friend Doug Smith at Dalswinton, I am looking for a beat that I can fish regularly. Blackwood is well kept and I fancy that I will be down there again very soon.

    Hello, Ive had a few this year so far. amazing what a bit of rain does to these rivers up here.
    I'm lucky as live next to an estuary, all river fish come in here to feed....Dee, Don, Ythan.

    you just never know which you will hook and each are very different.
    tight lines.

    How many have you had off the Nith this season mate, and for how much effort?

    Last Friday was the bbq for those that took part in this seasons sea trout experience. We got told what we already knew regarding how the fishing went, one night was washed out so that left three. an average of 25 anglers a night fished for a total of over 500 hours and only 17 sea trout were landed.

    Most if not all that I've spoken to have struggled this season, the sea trout just haven't been here in any number, and at the present time the salmon fishing is no better.
