Saturday 12th November:

With the river holding steady and the heavy rain forecast for SW Scotland apparently no longer expected, I am off to visit friends in Langholm and perhaps fish the Nith for a day or two. Since I have not yet worked out how to get e-mails on my phone, this means that if you want to book Groves Farm for next week, it will have to be by text on my mobile number.

To-day is the anniversary of the date in 1933 when the first photograph of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, was taken. Maybe it is an auspicious time to fish the Nith? From my experience of salmon fishing, you need all the luck and good omens you can lay your hands on!
