LOCAL angler Danny Swan has caught the first salmon of the season on the Teviot.

He is pictured being presented with the Tweedside Tackle decanter by the shop’s Caroline Pilcher for the first salmon of the season caught in Kelso Angling Association water on the Teviot.

The season opened in February and Mr Swan made his catch on May 25

Ms Pilcher said: “It has been the longest wait in many a year! Danny, a keen and well known local fisher, caught three fish but it was the 13lb hen fish, caught on a black Flying C from the Castle Pool that secured the trophy.”
