It started last Monday evening meeting John & Mick at Earlston and a couple of pre trip beers in The Bull before our start on Tuesday morning.
These trips are not really planned  just an idea of a direction to head in and a few options and then see where we end up. John offered to do the driving so that was a result and early Tuesday morning we're off to the Clyde near Abington for day one.
Our final itinerary:
  • Clyde (Abington/Crawford)
  • Pitlochry (overnight)
  • Spey (Kingussie)
  • Aviemore (overnight)
  • Don - Low Parkhill  (Abedeen)
  • Aberdeen (overnight)
  • Deveron & Bogie (Huntley)
  • Aberdeen (overnight)
  • Don - Upper Parkhill  (Aberdeen)
  • Falkirk (overnight)
  • Clyde - Lanark
  • Peebles- Earlston - Home

We had loads of laughs,  loads of fish on various methods ...French leader, nymphs, stimi-nymph and dries and ended up with just under 300 trout between us for the 6 days fishing not bad at all. It was great to get out and just go fishing and of course have a few beers & curries with some mates. Already we have sorted a few destinations for next year. Best grayling 50cm, Best trout lost 3lb a few salmon and sea trout too....Superb.
Thanks Richard for the Aberdeen hospitality and craic ... brilliant.... see you soon.
