Ten weeks into the salmon season and at last Ross AC have the first salmon of the year. The superb silver 8lb cock salmon fell to Club veteran Jon Daniels from the Club’s waters at Weirend. Jon was struggling with the pouring rain and strong south westerly wind making fishing the fly impossible so he opted to fish flying C.
The fin perfect fish swam off strongly on release.
Jon also hooked and lost another salmon later in the morning further downstream.
The salmon season is not going well this year with precious few salmon about. So far the total for the whole River is only about 40 fish reported. Hopefully the salmon will come later, one salmon will be a pretty poor return for all the work put in over the winter.
