Picture taken after I dropped a few of my original yellow belly Minnows off to that well respected Tay Ghillie Colin McFadyen of Dalmarnock fishings a great beat to practice the art of the floating Devon.
Thanks for the pic Colin.

The Helmsdale is a river that has been on my bucket list for some time. It just epitomises the dream Scottish highland spring venue for me. What do you know? I've been invited up to fish the river by a good friend who has clearly taken pity on my plight and if this bl**dy plague doesn't confine...
Looking for good information on where the beat markers and parking are located. I found Ruthven and a sign for Freeburn fishings but don't know if Moy beats are further downstream and if appropriate signage and beat markers are in situ. Aware the estate road is not in good condition not helped...
