Time to fish Scotland!

Postby paul » Tue Jul 10, 2007 4:03 pm

The Highlands stream Allt a' Ghlinne Bhig is ready to download. It's a pretty stream with some fun brown trout fishing, plus a bonus. The new download also gives you a shot at an Atlantic salmon! Sean provided both the photos of both the stream and the salmon.

These salmon aren't very active and may not respond well to the big flashy salmon flies, but if you match the hatches while fishing for the trout and patiently work the deeper holes you just might coax a salmon into taking a fly.

Here's the download link:

Sean has also provided additional photos of a loch for some stillwater fishing. I haven't started on those yet, but that will give us at least one more outing in Scotland.

Tight lines!

Paul,
Thanks for putting a river from this side of the Atlantic and congrats to Sean for some stunning photographs. The kind of place I would love to fish for real.
Caught my first broonies and hooked into my first salmon but lost it. Only had a 10' 4# rod so think was a bit ambitious trying to land it. Great addition to the site.

Wow! Couldn't wait to get home from work so I downloaded the update here at work just to take a peek and the image files - Looks Great! Can't wait to get home tonight and try it out. Too dang hot to fish in the "real" world tonight anyway - supposed to top 100 here.......

Big thanks to Sean - probably the only way I'll ever get to fish in the old country.

Thanks Sean and Paul. From fishing in New Hampshire for small mouth bass
last week to fishing for brownies and salmon in Scotland this week. It doesn't get any better than this.

This is one awesome game and it continues to get better. The contributions from many different people (you all know who you are) are what makes this unique. I'm proud to be associated with RWFF.

Best to all,
Boston Bob

Congrats Sean. Great addition to the game. I fished each site for one fish. No Salmon, but several browns in the 11" to 13" range. :D
A man should believe in something. I believe I'll go fishing.

@Taupo Tiger: How have you done this? Custom flies are typically not shown on the record screen.

Here I have used a Barkworth Kelson:
