    Scotland part 1: salmon fishing

    My son and I took a couple of days of to visit Scotland and do the things that tourists do. One of them was Salmon fishing. No photos of salmons because we did not catch anything. An impression:

    A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work. Very nice shots......wish I were there.

    If no salmon, did you catch something else? Lovely place!

    Actually the weather was fantastic except for some drizzle on the second day. The rain came back after we left.

    I really liked the shot with the mountains in the background, but the shot above could have come straight out of Fly Fishing magazine. Well done!

    Cheers, Jock

    Yes, that fly rod shot is wonderful. I'm just catching up with your trip and my first thought when I saw Riever was that you'd met up with Garry(Ripley'sbaby) and this was his dog Buster!:biggrin: Looking forward to seeing more on these other threads of yours!
