I have lost count of the number of times I’ve fished the Upper Tweed and blanked. I think my success rate (in terms of even remotely ‘countable’ fish) must be 20% at best. I keep going back though as it’s a lovely place to spend a couple of hours. There’s a strange magnetic presence, something about the light and the hills and the profound quiet. I hope this short sequence captures something of a summer evening of blanking up there.
