Good to back on the Dee and glad to se that most of Dess is the same after the big flod two years ago. High and cold water with a tough spring on the Dee gave us low expectations. First day was a great success with 4 good solid takes and two landed sea liced springers, a great start! I fished a floater and changed tips. To fish the fly in the middle section was enough. The gold water made me fish bigger flies. A Dee version Samurai with the golden yellow cone produced all takes. River is drooping slowly and we are having some great days ahead.. now time for our night fishing. I think I stroll back down to Jock Rae. I will keep you posted!
