Peter Brewis, a local angler from Kirknewton visited for only a couple of hours on the evening of Thursday 1st August , and had some success in the Beach Pool. (No. 7) He caught this beautiful Sea trout weighing 3 lb in the Beach Pool with a fly – Gold Willie Gunn. We are hoping he will return soon to enjoy the River Till during the peak season.

Despite the river being in flood for a couple of days, looking uninviting, and in my humble opinion looking less than hopeful, Sam Pattinson arrived for 2 days fishing on 15th August. On 14th August I sent a whatsapp video and photos of the Till looking very energetic, and said he could swap his days. Thankfully he ignored all my sound advice!
Irrigation Pool (No 6) looking energetic!
Take a look at this video below!
