With the river up about 10 inches and lots of fishing showing at our Dam beat conditions looked promising today. James Robertson was able to capitalise with a fish of  21.5lbs this afternoon on the fly from Pitlochry bank. The river is now dropping back to a good height for tomorrow – prospects looking good.
