A river runs through it by jamibann

A river runs through it

No fishing week would be complete without an image of a fisherman! So, here we are. Our friend Graham, hoping for some luck on the river. He was rewarded for his patience. Both he and hubby caught a salmon yesterday - a 6lber and a 12lber. They are both very happy men, as they don't like a blank week! Catch and release, of course, on the river Dee, so no salmon for dinner. Instead, we went out to a local establishment, Banchory Lodge, and had a beautiful meal of chicken, venison and cod!

In this photo, you can see the stony riverbank in the foreground, but in the background you can see the shoring up which had to be done after the 2015 big flood.
That's a lovely photo. Great point of view and good catch.
It's a totally absorbing activity. My Mum's brothers fished on the Oykel River up north and one of my aunts joined in after watching.

That looks like a fair race with the river at almost knee height. Delighted that you enjoyed the day's yield ;-)

Great shot Are you not allowed to eat the fish you catch?

A lovely action picture.

Cool action capture. Fishing has never been something that I have wanted to do. I believe though that it is quite therapeutic.

@777margo Not on the river Dee in Scotland, I'm afraid. There has been a lack of salmon for years now, and they are trying to repopulate the river by encouraging anglers to return their catch. I'm not sure it's working though! The flood in 2015 did a lot of damage to the fish stocks too as a lot of the salmon par ended up in fields and never got back into the river. :-(

@salza Yes, I don't really get it either, but hubby finds it very therapeutic.

...cant see any point of fishing if you cannot eat what you catch

Nice action capture

Must be quite hard to release a lovely salmon back into the river....I expect many are too tempted just to take one home, such a delicious fish to eat...it’s not like retuning a carp! Love the line of the rod as it parallels the river bank.

Great capture of a fisherman!

Water, trees, rocks, sky, and the company of people you like—makes for a beautiful day.

Nice illustration of the sport. It looks like it would be easy to topple over in the rough water and it also looks like it could be cold.

Oh, yummy to have fresh salmon. He certainly looks like he knows what he is doing.

Great capture both the photo and the catch and release salmon
