Latest PDAA News
Just received a message from Iain Bain, who has experimented with do it yoursel cold smoking of salmon. Watch the film,via the link, it is very interetsing and according to Iain tasted very good.
Very sad to read in T&S magazine the death of Orri Vigfusssion, on July 1st, who set up the North Atlantic Salmon Fund,(NASF) which enabled the buy, out of a huge percentage of netting rights, all over the world, and allowed millions of Atlantic salmon, to reach their home spawning grounds. The Atlantic Salmon conservation community have lost a true hero, and will be sadly missed.
The fishing on the Upper Scone beats,(Benchill and Pitlochrie Pool), donated by John Apthorp to PDAA, finished on Saturday 22nd July 2017, at Bencill. Congratulations to Ian Shaw and Gary Cairns, catching a 14lb salmon and a 4lb grilse respectively, on Saturday. Ian went into P.D.Malloch's on Saturday speculating, and found both the shop permits, for Upper Scone, were not being used, Ian took one and the rest is history. It proves, it is always worth checking (by phoning the shop), if any permits are still available, even late in the day. Upper Scone did well this year, possibly due to the low water level, allowing members access to the holding areas. It is hoped this donated fishing, will be on offer again in 2018, it is much appreciated and thanks to John Apthorp for all he does for PDAA.
I spent the afternoon fishing at Rome Croy, no fish but noticed someone has been busy making new seats at the Woody Hole beat to replace those lost in last years flood. Also seats in place at Back of the Island, well done to those responsible.

Perth Grammar School
I have had another very interesting conversation with david paul at the grammar school.
He has intimated that as soon as the schools go back he will arrange a meeting with the head of science and also head of support within the school to look at ways we can offer some after school coaching and also roll out our beginners course to interested pupils.
