Mixed fortunes

The final fishing days of August proved to be one of mixed fortunes on the River Ness. Friday brought smiles to the faces of members Ally Henderson, Donald MacPherson and John Benson with fine individual catches. Saturday saw Ladies who Fish enjoy a fish-less but successful day raising funds for the Highland Hospice. That was until early afternoon when many hours of incessant rain produced a fast rising river which scuppered the hopes of visiting ladies and local anglers.

Ally Henderson was out on the Silver Wells on Friday where perseverance produced a fresh fly-caught grilse of six pounds. Meanwhile, Donald MacPherson was up on the Mill Stream where he landed a cock fish of seven pounds. In the evening, downstream on the Friar’s Shott, John Benson’s continuing search for sea trout was rewarded with a two and a half pounder caught then released on a size 14 teal blue and silver.

Success: Another fish for Ally
