Thurso River At Westerdale 17 February 2003
The first salmon of the season was caught by James MacDonald (74) on Beat 8 at the covered pool and the salmon weighed in at 8lbs. James first fished the Thurso when he was 8 and fished for it trout until 20 years ago when he retired from the Merchant Navy was then persuaded to try the salmon. He has fished regularly since then and this is the first time he has caught the first of the season. The fly was a 2" Willie Gunn.
