Hi there,

My other half has booked us a week in Ballater in Feb. I can bring my gear so Im after a few days on the river.

Any tips for where to go n what flies etc.

Ta,

Matthew

Probably depends on how cold a winter it is, but would say the Banchory area would be best bet, black and yellow tubes with sinking tips

you will have to look at beats below Aboyne . Above Aboyne bridge beats are not open till March

Anything from Lower Crathes and West Durris up at around Kincardine would be your best bet. Park used to be a great spring beat but hasn't been the same since Storm Frank (and marauding seals!)

Thanks for the advice, if its as Mild on the Dee as it is in Yorkshire then should there be fish about?
