    Default Aberdeenshire Dee - Craidendinnie; Waterside &Ferrar and Little Blackhall & Inchmarlo

    On request, some more photos from various beats on the Dee. First Craigendinnie in late sept 2007. Got 3 fish (1 grilse, 1 ST, one salmon) in 2 days) Easy to medium fishing and wading:

    Morning mist over the Dee valley, Headinch beat

    Upper part, just below

    A bit further down on Craigendinnie, looking
    Same spot, looking downwards. Not too easy to wade the outer turn, but many fish present :


    Lorne Pool, getting late, looking upwards to Tanar Mouth. Aboyne Castle on the other side. This pool was literally stuffed

    Lorne pool, fish on for my wife


    Myself with a grilse from Lorne Pool the same evening. The ghillie had gone home, and as norwgians we prefer dusk or dawn for fishing. 2 fish within

    My wife with her first salmon ever, from Lorne Pool. Heavily coloured, went back in

    Day 2 at Craigendinnie, started at the bottom of the beat. Here's a seatrout in the hands of the ghillie - taken just above Tanar Mouth. Also lost a bigger seatrout from the same spot :

    Next day at Waterside and Ferrar, a pleasant surprise. Lots of fish showing in many pools, and many good stretches for flyfishing. Got 1 fish from Barrons pool, many fish showing. Easy fishing and wading in many parts:

    Upper

    Barrons pool, got a nice, coloured hen here. Appr 8 lbs I guess, have to find photo of the fish later ;-)

    And here the fish is, nice coloured hen in good condition. Put up a good fight (and yes, it's a GuideLine Le Cie rod, Hardy Mach 2

    Little Blackhall and Inchmarlo, late May 2008. Just one day, to get the worst rust off the casting before the Norwegian season in 2008. No fish for me, but good sport anyway. Tough wading at places from this side, not for beginners. But another great beat.

    Very upper part, Mills pool

    Middle part. Don't remember the name. No fish here, and a bit

    The famous Roe Pot. It's said to hold fish always, I believe that. Nearly impossible to wade, use the croys. Lovely surroundings. One of 2 scots I met

    The nice fishing hut, just above Roe Pot



    Details from the roof in the fishing hut. Symbols from a fisherman and a hunters wet dreams ;-)




    Well, not too god quality pics. It's obvious that the focus has been on fishing. Nevertheless somthing to drool over in the cold winter months ;-)

    Default More pics ?

    Well, finally found som fishpix. "Emergency photos" taken with the mobile, but I'll post them soon anyway.

    What one really should have on the riverbank, is a combined photo- and videocamera, waterproof and decent optics. Some OK combos seen this year, but a good one next year maybe?

    I'll also post a thread with pics for "what to see and do - apart from fishing - while on Deeside".

    Ursus

    P.S: The pics are now (06.nov.08) added in the thread "Deeside"
