Unprecedented dry weather this season, which pushed both the salmon and the anglers to their limits. 
Hopefully next season’s weather will be back to normal. 
Here’s a short chronological compendium of @c4mmychapman clients’ piscatorial captures and associated river and loch activities, this season, between April and July, set to the tune and tempo of “Octopussy” by Los Juanitos. creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/fr/

Aberdeenshire based angler Keith Armstrong, landing his first Thurso salmon, on the very first day of his first ever visit. 
Keith’s friend Martin was the lucky winner of the SGA’s silent auction and accompanied by his friend Ronnie Thomson, he arrived when the river had just received a drop of water. 
Fantastic day on the river in stunning light and good craic all day long. 
The perfect ending for Keith, arrived in the form of an 8lb cock fish, which nearly pulled him out of his waders, on the take. 
Isn’t it nice to have good friends. 
Happy days 😊 #scottishgamekeepersassosiation #thursoriver #salmonfishing  #riverthursofishing #ulbsterarmshotel #catchandrelease #mcleannets #scottishflyfishing #scottishhighlands #highlandflyfishing #salmon #salmonriver #atlanticsalmon #atlanticsalmonfishing #atlanticsalmonflyfishing #visitscotland #visithighlands #visithighlandsnc #nc500 #nc500route #salmonfishingnc500 #nc500fishing #scotland #scotlandhighlands
Hardiest angler on the Thurso this year?

Great start to Ronnie Thomson’s first day’s salmon fishing, in many years. 
Ronnie’s friend made the highest bid, at the SGA Auction, winning three days salmon fishing on the Thurso. 
Incredibly, Ronnie had spent the day beforehand, stalking stags and had spent the night, ‘wild’ camping in a bivvy, until his bag became waterlogged, whereupon he moved into the luxury of his car.

Not only the hardiest but possibly the most relaxed angler I’ve encountered, when playing a salmon. 
Awesome. 
Congratulations Ronnie, outstanding effort. #riverthurso #thursoriver #salmonfishing  #riverthursofishing #ulbsterarmshotel #catchandrelease #mcleannets #scottishflyfishing #scottishhighlands #highlandflyfishing #salmon #salmonriver #atlanticsalmon #atlanticsalmonfishing #atlanticsalmonflyfishing #visitscotland #visithighlands #visithighlandsnc #nc500 #nc500route #salmonfishingnc500 #nc500fishing #scotland #scotlandhighlands
Monday Motivation. Thurso Angler James, landing a salmon on Saturday 29th September. The drought is over, now is the time of plenty. Tightlines to all our anglers during this final week of the season and to all other anglers out there, casting a line, wherever you may be. Thanks once again to @jrichardson280 for the fish food. #riverthurso #thursoriver #salmonfishing  #riverthursofishing #ulbsterarmshotel #catchandrelease #mcleannets #scottishflyfishing #scottishhighlands #highlandflyfishing #salmon #salmonriver #atlanticsalmon #atlanticsalmonfishing #atlanticsalmonflyfishing #visitscotland #visithighlands #visithighlandsnc #nc500 #nc500route #salmonfishingnc500 #nc500fishing #scotland #scotlandhighlands
Fish number 2

For new Thurso Angler, Tim Rogers. 
Fine gentleman though he is, Tim asserted that he would not be resorting to Maxima nylon tippet, as recommended by his Ghillie, instead, he would be using a finely engineered German brand, as recommended by one of his valued friends. 
Needless to say that when the 20+lb salmon engulfed Sam Glenn’s beautifully tied shrimp pattern and cartwheeled out of the water, that was the last we ever saw of the fly and the fish. 
The offending spool of nylon was subsequently placed into the boot of the car and the rest of the trip went very smoothly indeed, with this fish being the second that Tim landed. 
Tim and Mark had outbid others at a charity auction in support of Salmon and Trout Conservation. https://www.salmon-trout.org/

Tim assures me that he and Mark are prepared to pay more for their fishing next year, if they are promised a decent Ghillie. 
Thanks again for the fish food Sam.
