    While it is still a long wait to the 1 April opening now is the time to get out on the river and do a bit of bank work to ensure easy access to the pools. With the legacy of 2 closed periods and the current shortened season many beats have become overgrown with brambles, gorse and small trees...

    A lovely stretch of water, perfect for fly and some nice pools. The water was perfect, a bit of height and nice visibility. Saw a couple of salmon jump and my mate lost a seatrout that was about 3 lb, which was very fresh and totally bright silver! I blanked, but it was not through lack of...

    Looking for a bit of advice on targeting slow moving pools on the fly. Is this something better done with a single hander and fished like you would a still water for stockies? Sorry if it's a bit silly just unsure how to fish them as the currents not really moving your fly and i can't really...

    I've known for some years now that the level of my river was dropping. Even before the devastating flood in the summer of 2017, the river seemed to be getting lower every summer. Last year, the year after the flood, the river had to be learnt from scratch again for fishing. Every pool had...

I've just got back from 3 fishless days on the River Dee where I heard anglers blaming Storm Frank for the ruination of the Salmon Fishing on that part of the river.A lack of fish and pools permanently changed by the...

    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knew whether or not it's possible to source salmon pool/beat maps by the artist W N Bewick Ginty? I know there were a couple on eBay at the end of last year but I can't seem to find anywhere that sells them. Is it a case of there were only a couple of...

    Well with this deluge of snow up in the hills, it should give us longer periods of decent water, well into the spring. Might be some big water and some changing pools when all this lot starts its thaw. Not seen this much for loooong while.

    Right!........ here we go! I think that this may be a dumb question and one that I've been wanting to ask for a while. How do you read a river? How do you know where the runs and the lie's are from just from looking at the river and more importantly where the pools are. I ask this as everybody...

    Time to turn the tables Loxie! Clue is that it is the summer of 2012 and this is one of the most productive pools on this river.

    Over the last maybe 20 years, I have fished with the same 2 or 3 guys who are good fishers. On our latest trip we discussed the fact that generally I catch more salmon than the others but of a lower average weight. It was suggested that I caught more smaller fish as my technique is to fish pools...
