    I wouldn't be without my Spey Lines for that very reason.

    I have a bushman hand saw but fear I may be under gunned with that equipment .

    For anyone interested there is a Fetternear beat map on the fishpal page on the links tab. Shows the named pools and track. Am thinking the track was put in for the Gentry many years ago

    It shows how good it could be with some chainsaw work

    The Don really is a beautiful river, both to fish, and the scenery.

    If the runs come back to anything like they were, it would (again!) be top of my destination list. We'd need to find somewhere else to stay after the old Kildrummy Inn became a bit OTT. Maybe the Brig will be worth a look...!

    For a visiting Angler like your self Oscar I have to say Oct is not worth it sadly. it would need to be late May early June or September if the water is good.

    Oct is now a damp squib sadly. I know lots of folk including myself used to love fishing in Oct but it is so poor now I no longer set the alarm for 6am A couple hours in the Afternoon is all the effort I give it now.

    We used to go in late September, and the biggest issue was water on the eastern side of Scotland.

    As you say, May would be great, but doesn't work for me from a family perspective.

    Cheers.
