Hi Ken,

Along with 5 other mad keen salmon anglers, I fished the River Dee (Park Beat) from 6th to 8th February expertly guided by Jim Fearn.  The fishing was fantastic, and between us we landed 5 superb springers all caught on a Gunn Snaelda.  I learnt so much from Jim, not just how to improve my casting, but how to fish the fly correctly, water craft and controlling the depth of the fly.

I enclose a few pictures of a memorable few days.

I would also make mention of the two gillies, Bert and Stewart who were very helpful and extremely polite.

All in all, it was a fantastic trip on a superb piece of water.  The evenings consisted of plenty of fly tying, and even more consumption of single malts.  A fantastic time was had by all, and one I will remember for many years to come.
