    Default Headinch & Cambus O'May

    Some images from this lovely beat on the Aberdeenshire Dee, fished it for three days in sept. Just one trout. Heavy wind, very peaty water at times

    Near the top on the Headinch side, a bit scary wading for my wife



    Fantastic pool for flyfishing, lots of fish showing



    Looking upward to the Cambus O'May footbridge (pict from late May)



    Looking downwards from the same point (also late may, just photos, no fishing)



    Myself fishing upper part of Tassachd. Not the easiest wading, especially from the other side.



    Lower part of Tassachd, the famous triangular rock at the lower part. A lot of coloured fish showing the one morning with good weather.



    Really lovely beat, a lot of good pools for flyfishing. Would like to come back in late April or May. Mid sept this year was too late. But great fun anyway ;-)

    Default More photos ?

    Well, yes. As soon as I get time for it. Will also show some pics from Craigendinnie, Waterside & Ferrar (both last september, good beats) and Little Blackhall & Inchmarlo (May this year). Problem is that in Scotland You often start fishing too late in the morning or stop fishing too early in the evening to get really good pictures (too much light). And taking photos from "the other side" is often best, but I like to fish myself ...

    In Norway most rivers only fish from June through to aug. (and I often fish really early or late). Need to go abroad to cure the "salmonitis" in spring and/or autumn.. If You go to the "conservation" thread and then "eradication of GS" , You'll see some pics from the lovely Driva from sept this year. Posted last night.

    Great pictures from the Dee, Ursus. Looking forward to more pics from this great river. Only fished it once so really appreciate pictures from other beats.

    Just paid a visit to Conversation and saw you pictures of Driva. Have fished a lot in Norway and have driven along Drive quite often but never fished it - apparently my mistake - looks beautiful!

    UN-thanks for those great photos.

    Brings back great memories of our March trip in the snow and a day in June.
