An unusual mix

We had scorching sun all morning yesterday and then things started to cloud over and the wind got up. With the wind came some heavier clouds but none of us predicted rain showers. The fishing was definitely better as the cloud came in.
Philip W with his first Russian Salmon
We had 8 fish for the day with Rob L catching 2 from the same spot. As ever Alan E and Jim S caught one each. Ian B had a nice fish at Picnic. Philip W caught his first Russian salmon at Simmon’s.
Daniel B with a hard fort fish up river
Pana landed 10 fish for the team. George S had 2 fish as did Alexander M. Willie G had 3 fish for the day and 1 each for David H, Charles M and Peter P. Much more important to Pana were the football results!
Into the net
Kitza have yet to confirm but it sounded like they were on 10 before supper with Paul R having the bulk of the sport again.
Much debated Forget Me Nots
Here at middle there was much debate regarding the name of the little blue and yellow flowers that are growing everywhere between the cabins and Generator. James S went with Forget Me Not but Daniel B was having none of it. A photo was quickly dispatched to Mrs Anne for confirmation and James S was declared the winner!
Azar taking the lazy crossing option
This morning the sun broke through briefly but the cloud cover seems to be rolling back in. The forecast was showers but I fear they actually arrived last night so we will see what materialises today. The water temperature is 16 degrees and the river only dropped 1.5”. Jon P had 2 fresh grilse from Bear before breakfast which has spurred everyone on. Well almost everyone.
