Well in Clydefisher. Good to hear of good fish coming out of what I understand was once one of the worlds most polluted rivers. Good luck with the fluff flinging!

I have just returned from a week away with in English Police Fly Fishing Team in Scotland. Whilst the main event was the Lake of Menteith, i did manage a few days on the Upper Clyde. It was a stunning piece of river - and i will definately return!

Some great fishing, some huge browns seen and hooked, although the fish that slipped my hook around 3lbs was described as 'wee' by the bailiff!

I will return, its a lovely spot.
