First Outing Of The Season At Park Today

The famous Park beat hut on the Aberdeenshire River Dee.
Looking downstream in the Castleton Pool. I got 2 sea trout kelts at the bottom of here on a Monkey fly.

Looking downstream in the Durris Stream.

Looking upsream from the Durris to the bottom of the Cellar Pool.

Here is a few pictures from my day a Park today. The water rose a bit last night after heavy rain and the gauge read 43" this morning. No springers from the the beat today but plenty kelts.  I managed 2 sea-trout kelts which was fine to get the heart racing again and to put a bend on the rod. Both fish took a 1 inch copper Monkey just before the fly came on to the dangle in the Castleton pool. It was very wet and windy in the morning but it turned out a fine afternoon. Nice to meet the other rods. A fine bunch of lads. Keith the ghillie is also a topper of a guy. Had a good day out. Hopefully next time I'll encounter a nice Dee Springer. I will be back to try again!!!
