Before 2016 ends, I would show you photos from the last trip.
End of October I had 3 days fishing in Scotland. Was together with 4 friends and we fished the river Tweed.
Very hard conditions, cause there had not been rain for weeks, so the river was very low.
Hope you will enjoy the following photos





The beautiful river Tweed.


My german friend fishing our beat Holylee :fished


And another grman friend getting ready to go the the river.


I caught 2 salmons on this trip. This was the first one. 90 cm long. Released after this photo was made.


And the second salmon i caught. This one was 87 cm long. Released after the photo was made.


The fly that caught both salmons. A tiny Francis, on a tungsten tube.


Our reels and rods are having a break :D And so did we.


Home made burgers at the river and a good glass of redwine. This is life :wink:

We were 5 anglers and fished for 3 days. Total we caught 3 salmon. I had the 2 of them, so for me, the trip was very great :lol: :D

Looking forward to 2017, were I hope time will allow me, to come out and fish some more.

Best
Jacob

Incredible, as always, Jacob! Water looks to be full? It sounds like a salmon fisherman needs to learn patience and to think in terms of enjoying the environment and friends, rather than fish limits! It seems you have mastered both! :D
