It was great to once again be able to join the opening day celebrations of the Spey at the Victoria Bridge in Aberlour where once again the event was supported by Aberlour Distillery and Walkers.

I don’t know about you but the anticipation of that first day out in the new season is a wonderful feeling. Visits to your tackle room, hut or garage where you store your mountains of kit become a more regular feature and lines, flies, rods all checked for the umpteenth time and then just because you can, a trip to your favourite fishing shop or online site to get that last minute something you believe is definitely needed to make that first trip a success!
