Late May was wet in the Highlands! Very wet. That in itself is not uncommon, and something we’ve grown used to, but catching salmon in the Highlands rivers certainly has been a challenge of late. That was until an old school friend of John’s (Mungo Ingleby, Sporting Lets, Galbraith) rang John on Sunday evening and said “grab your rod and head north if you can, tomorrow you will be guaranteed a fish”! John was clearly sceptical, knowing that 2018 was not a vintage year on the Carron, and that Mungo had not fished this river before, so there was an element of uncertainty. In addition, for marketing purposes, John was required to do plenty of photography, and therefore his time with rod in hand would be limited.
Unforgettable. Tight lines. And for some of the best fishing in Scotland, contact Mungo Ingleby at Sporting Lets, Galbraith.
