Had a day on the Tilbouries beat of the River Dee on the 21st. Water was a good height and 4 fish were landed the day before I arrived. I didn't catch anything this time but one of the rods landed a 8lb bar of silver around lunch time. Blanked but it's a lovely beat and Willie Banks the Ghillie/Owner knows it inside out and was more than happy to help me out regarding the lines, tips and lies etc. Here are some pics of the beat.
