Portnacraig Pitlochry Beat, yesterday, 14/1/17
Conditions are excellent on Portnacraig Pitlochry beat for the start of the salmon season tomorrow (Monday 16th January), with the snow on the hills slowly thawing and the river at a very nice height. The opening day is just for paid-up members who take turns if necessary with the tickets with up to three of us fishing on each bank at any time.
Our last opening day fish was a magnificent fresh run 21 pounder caught on fly in 2013 - the photo is still online at http://pitlochryanglingclub.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/opening-day-success.html. Something similar tomorrow would be great! The lucky member, Gordon Nichol, who caught the fish was awarded The MacTaggart Kenmore Trophy (see below) and an accompanying gallon of Dewar’s whisky for it at a Gala Dinner that evening at Kenmore Hotel!
The main opening day ceremonies tomorrow are beside the Kenmore Hotel and at Meikleour Fishings Boathouse by Kinclaven Bridge. People are very welcome to attend either event – full details are at http://kenmorehotel.com/salmon-openingand http://www.tdsfb.org/images/River%20Tay%202017%20Opening%20Poster.pdf. Both events are expected to be well-attended.  
Tight lines to everyone fishing anywhere on the Tay tomorrow! Entries for The MacTaggart Kenmore Trophy for landing and returning the biggest fish of the opening day from anywhere on the Tay system should be made immediately after capture to Kenmore Hotel 01887 830205 and with the support of any witness, a good photograph and measurements of the fishes length and its girth immediately in front of the dorsal fin.
