Good level on Spey

On Sunday, Al, Ian and myself set off from the Bridge Inn to paddle to the island just past Cromdale bridge. Weather was wet but not unpleasant, water level high enough for most of the rocks and shingle to be covered. From Cromdale we went to Aberlour. Very fast, lovely long wavetrains, you could paddle where you wanted! Friendly fishermen too as proved when we stopped just before Aberlour for a bite to eat and the Ghillie came over to have a chat and invited us to watch a fish being caught and released. He likes to see and chat to canoeists and kayakers and is very knowledgeable about the area so if you are passing, look out for Willie!
