Another lovely looking stream Douglas. You are lucky to have so many nice streams and burns to go at. I envy you
Hi Bazungu,Seems this week was a productive week for everyone, lots of fish and some biggies as well!
The weather was nice, so I decided to head to the Tweed yesterday evening. As last time I was catching a lot of parr swinging wet flies, I reasoned the Parr is mainly in the top water layer and I need to get deeper for the big trout. Went to the same stretch again but now with my euronymph set up. I caught even more parr than before, basically every cast my nymphs would get attacked by the parr, very frustrating for strike detection. Eventually a proper fish was on the line, but got off.... all I saw was a silver flash.
A bit later, finally another decent hook up and till my now my biggest Tweed trout. This is a different animal from the trout of my local stretch, they look like mean fighting machines here, not soft and fat as my local urban trout.
Very happy with this fish!
I did realise I really do not like fishing euronymph style, it is very repetitive and frankly a bit boring to me. Its fun for now and then but would not be able to do it every single time I go fishing.

On my way back to Edinburgh I almost hit with my car: 2 rabbits, 1 sheep, 1 badger, 1 fox and actually hit 1 bat which flew into my front window. Quite the drive!
