The two lads with me today did just that, but I can’t keep up with them anymore, half a mile up and half a mile down from the car park is my lot.Lovely stretch Steven, but can be extremely hard going, especially over those boulder fields. I think the further up you go towards the spout, the hungrier - and the more numerous - the trout get. Certainly not wading for the faint hearted, fortunately much can be reached from the banks.
Wished I could have had a day there ( needs a stay-over for me), will have to wait until next season now.
Never been that far Ged and unless someone takes me on a quad bike I never will.Well fished Steven.
Been there and done that. First time Peter was there and it was hard work with a strong downstream wind. Second time I went it was much easier. They say only one chance to catch a fish in the pockets, I caught 5 and lost one out of one bit alone.
I took my wading staff first time, more trouble than it was worth. Didn't bother second time.

Most do fish near the car parking, hence better fishing the further up you go. There is a difficult boulder section to trek over on the way up though. Helicopter would be the ideal way to get up there.Never been that far Ged and unless someone takes me on a quad bike I never will.
Hi Douglas,Hi Scot,
I've wet waded for most of this year. It is really quite liberating - No pulling waders off and on and you don't have to worry about leaks!
However, I did wear my pvc waders whilst fishing the Upper Tweed yesterday, but the water was still really quite warm.
I was hoping to catch a grayling yesterday, but failed. I usually get my fair share in September, but conditions are very different this year.
Catching lots of salmon parr bodes well for the salmon angler.
what a glorious setting to fish inHad a pleasant day on the upper Tees today, no fish pics but no one blanked. It was hard work strong downstream wind as always, stuck on dries and had a few small ones.
It was warm and sunny, I even had a snooze on the bank at lunchtime.
A few grouse dropping in I think there was a walked up day not far off and the ones that escaped landed close by.
Fished my Dibble cane rod today with Cadno silk line it’s always handy to use silk when casting into the wind.
Roger my partner also christened his new Dibble rod today with a first brownie.View attachment 43656View attachment 43657View attachment 43658
Aye Douglas, there are some nice fish to be had. It’s a challenging stream at times but I have done quite well. It pays to know the water, I have spent a lot of time on it and have never really stopped learning.That's a good stamp of fish for the WOL Scott.
You have done well there this season.
I'd like to get another session in before the shutters come down. Not sure were though.
