Opening Day

Another season got underway on the Tummel today and as always hopes were high.  Conditions were favourable this morning with the winds having eased overnight and the river sitting at a good height. We had a reasonably good turnout with a few hardy members wetting a line and others dropping by for a chat. Unfortunately the opening day success of 2019 wasn’t repeated but with a mild winter to date there should be a few fish in the beat and hopefully it won’t be too long before the first one comes to the net. Tight lines to all our fishermen for 2020!

Ready for action this morning.

Members gather for a cast.

No luck today but shouldn't be too long ....
