Taymounts second spring salmon of the season

It was another cracking spring day on Taymount. Pictured is Alun Williams with Taymounts second spring salmon of 2013. The 9lb fish was hooked and landed in the linn pool on a copper salmo. Also pictured is a rawner landed by Richie on a floating devon.

Opening day 2013

It was a fantastic opening day on Taymount yesterday. The weather was crisp and bright and the light covering of snow made for great spring fishing conditions. The day began with a great opening ceremony with pipes from Taymount laird John Lindsay and a great speech and toast by Alex Graham. John made the traditional first cast and the new season was declared open. There were a couple of late running salmon landed in the morning. After a cracking lunch it was time to get back on the water again. Alex turned out to be lucky for the second year running by landing Taymounts first spring salmon of the season. The 13 1/2 lb opening day fish was hooked in the majors cast on a vision 110. Very well done to Alex on this great achievement. It was a great day and hopefully the start of a great season on Taymount.
