Hello everyone,
If that ****ing covid allows it, go fishing for a week at Woodend on the Dee in early September!
I don't know the river at all, and arriving by plane so limited in luggage that must be taken, I have the choice between 13'4, 13'8, 15'2.
Thanks in advance to anyone who knows this part of the river

Lovely beat fished it a few times!
IMO no need for the 15'2, I would probably go for the 13'8 just in case the water is up a bit.
Good luck I'm sure you will enjoy this beautiful beat.

I know the beat.
For September my first pick would be 13’4 (13’8 as back-up).
The 15’2 I personally would not use on Woodend .....only perhaps if high water in February/March.
Nice beat.....Hopefully you will be able to travel...fingers crossed.

I put a report on here a couple of years ago I'll try and find the link.
I have fished it for many years and usually take 2nd week in June when the seatrout arrive we also take sluie next door.
I have fished woodend in sept, there's usually a lot of fish about but they are a bit coloured.
As said don't need anything bigger than a 14ft rod.

Most of the Woodend beat is directly opposite the lower half of the Commonty beat, including the Garden Pool.
Most of it can be seen in the following link.
