Lower Dess - River Dee 08/10/2011

This Saturday, my friend Charlie Robertson was delighted to accept an invitation to fish as a guest on this beautiful area of Royal Deeside. With the weather pretty good and the water a good height , he managed to land a brace. Both his fish took a Silver Ally's tied on a 1/2" copper tube. This is a fly Charlie does really well with during summer and the back end. He landed a 15lb cock salmon from the Pitslug pool and a 9lb hen salmon from the Jock Rae pool. Well done to him and he has kindly sent me some pictures from his day.
Looking downstream toward the Mill from Rossach. This pool looks a lot different from when I fished it from the Carlogie side back in February when the water was about 6' higher.
Returning a 15lber from the above pool.
Looking upstream toward Pitslug. Charlie commented that it is one of, if not THE best pools he has ever cast a line.
A nice picture of the Mill and the water wheel.
Another classic looking bit of fly water on Royal Deeside.
A quick picture of a hen salmon from the Jock Rae pool.
One of the huts on the beat which like all fishing huts, has had many fishing stories told in them over the years.
My uncle, Stuart Fleming was also on the Dee this weekend and he manged to land a hat-trick of salmon at Tilbouries. He landed all fish with-in a 45 minute period. Another rod landed 6 for his day. Willie Banks, the beat owner and ghillie managed the other one. Sounds like Saturday was a good day to be on the Dee!
