I have never and will never pay £140 for one days salmon fishing , as is the price for lower Blackhall, especially nowadays. But what are other similar priced beats on Tweed, Spey etc catching? I wouldn't mind if there were some beats still very expensive aslongs they were catching loads of fish, but even some of the hallowed ground of some of the top Spey beats are struggling . It really is a sad situationLower Blackhall & Banchory, is a 4 rod beat, 5 year May average of 12 Fish (1 fish every 8-10 rod days) and it costs £140 per rod, per day.🤣😂🤣😂
I’d like to fish some of the Dee beats; because I’ve been reading about them for 30+ years. But those prices are ridiculous and what they tell me is that these beats are not for me, they’re for those with either another level of funding and / or dedication.
I hope the Ghillies are allowed to get some local rods out to fish the spare, un-let days.
