Tilbouries River Dee 21/07/11

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.
Just below the junction half way down the Island Pool.
Looking upstream towards the Tilbouries hut and the start of the Cairnton Pool.
Fishing down through the Cairnton to the Larches (Pool just off the bend on the right) were the 8lb fish was landed.
The hugh Lawson Pool. At this height of water, the fish were all hugging the far bank (Middle Drum) and to cover them wading out as far as you dared was essential. It is hard work fishing down this pool up past your waist in water trying to reach the far side. I was knackered when I got home after a few runs down here!
