DALSWINTON, RIVER NITH

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - First Cast -

As the sun sinks on a bright De­cem­ber day on the Nith, there’s time for a few more search­ing casts for grayling. The lower and mid­dle Nith beats, such as Dalswinton, Black­wood, Fri­ars’ Carse and DGAA Carn­sal­loch, present the best chance of a good fish – a three­p­ounder is on the cards. Pink Shrimps rarely fail and a Red Buzzer from your reser­voir box is worth try­ing along­side a heav­ier nymph. Sweet­corn and worms are used by those who pre­fer to trot.
