He’s done it again!

The trek upstream from the Mill buildings to the Weir Pool is not the easiest approach to a pool, even for the club’s younger, fitter members. But it doesn’t discourage veteran fisher, octogenarian Melvin Smith. Mel was there again this morning (August 13) to hook, land and release his second fish from the pool this season - a magnificent cock salmon of nine pounds.

The General’s Well Pool is often ignored by anglers but is always worth a cast. That’s where Michael Grant wet a line today and was rewarded with a four pound grilse, duly released. It was attracted by a 1/2 inch Red Francis copper tube.
