Start of the Nith fishing season

Today was the start of the 2013 fishing season on the Nith for salmon and sea trout and opening ceremonies were held up and down the catchment to welcome the start of the season.  The Nith District salmon Fishery Board and Nith Catchment Fishery Trust were invited to attend the Burgh Anglers Opening ceremony held on the “Wee Green” early this morning.  After an opening speech by Alex Saville, Chairman of the Burgh Anglers, Jack Groom the Provost of Dumfries opened the season by pouring whisky into the river in a traditional blessing to bring luck to the anglers who fish the river.  It was a beautiful day and we hope that tight lines will be had by all this year.
