The river rose by 6 inches overnight and this brought lots of fish into out Dam beat this morning - conditions looked excellent. These fish were moving fast, though, - over 200 have ascended the ladder in the last 24 hours – but with three fish caught it was still an excellent day: Nicol Paton was first to take advantage with a fish of 10lbs on the fly from Port-na-Craig bank this morning; not long after Dave Stewart had a fish of 6 lbs on the fly from Pitlochry bank; and in the afternoon Graham Fyfe continued his good run with a fish of 6lbs on the fly from Pitlochry bank. The river has now dropped back a little but with plenty of fish about prospects remain good.

Dave Stewart lands a 6lber on Pitlochry bank this morning

Living as I do at the foot of Birnam Glen, and loving nothing better than a walk with the dog on quiet tracks and trails in beautiful surroundings, it's hard to tell you just how lucky I feel to live in this part of the world.


Over the years that I've lived here I've seen all manner of Scottish wildlife in and around Birnam Glen, discovered ancient lost paths, the hidden picnic spots of the Victorians, found a forgotten waterfall, sledged down the entire length of the hill with the kids, marvelled at those taken part in the annual running event, tracked down bronze age rock carvings and iron age hillforts... and on it goes.


So this is my homage to a tiny corner of Scotland that has so much to give if you're just prepared to look - please come back from time to time to check on my latest piece of of rose tinted, besotted scribblings, which I hope you will enjoy!
