Winter On Donside At Alford

I took these photos of the water above the Bridge of Alford which is run by Aberdeenshire Council. The beats are called Waterside on the North bank and Haughton on the South bank. This is a part of the River Don that can be very productive given the right conditions and will hold fish during the later part of the Spring months. I only ventured a few hundred yards upstream but what I saw looked very appealing albeit very cold! This a beautiful part of Aberdeenshire and details of the fishing can be found using this link.

The beats above are Breda on the South bank and Littlewood on the North bank. I fished Breda last summer and really enjoyed it even though I lost a few fish! The Middle to Upper Don are areas I would like to fish a lot more and will try to do so this season.Click on the link to see a report I done in July of the Breda beat. River Don Breda Fishings

Hotel Pool (North Bank) or Boat Pool depending what side of the river you are on.
Looking upstream from the Bridge of Alford. Here the river splits forming the island, Cracking looking stretch of water.

Gird Pot. A nice looking pool above the bridge. Was quite shallow in places and would probably fish better in higher water.

Looking upstream from from the neck of the Gird Pot. A lovely run with the flow running more towards this bank. Looks very "fishy".
