    Default River Dee, summer fishing.

    Personally, I would avoid the lower river beats as in the past few years the fish have not been hanging around. Anywhere between Park and Headinch & Cambus O'May. Fishpal is now taking bookings for next season so I would start looking at what is available and what suits you needs.

    Hi WE

    There was one lower rver beat that was stuffed with fish from late June onwards. Whether you could tempt them was a different kettle oh fish

    I did manage 3 oh them on two different days though
    ..........so many flies, so little time!

    Yes, but that was you. I heard a rumour that you once caught a salmon on a wet pavement in Torrie.

    Not been since the big floods a few years ago, but the North bank was the easier to fish I thought before that, I notice they have reduced the rods on either bank also, thinking of having a go some time this spring conditions permitting.

    Cairnton for me too. Crathie worth a shout but slightly blighted by proximity to public roads and well known beauty spots.

  10. Default Cambus O May

    Try Cambus. Fished there for many years, in August and September. Classic fly water. Double bank, pools for all heights of water. Craig the ghillie is a joy and the surroundings and huts idyllic. You won't be disappointed.
