A fine fish from Dinnet
These beats provide a wonderful opportunity for anglers to experience truly world class fishing potential with beats that are arguably the very best that the River Dee has on offer. Last year for instance Lower Crathes rods landed 114 salmon in September, Dinnet landed 35 and Crathie landed 92 which gives an indication of how prolific these beats can be. The River Dee Trust is indebted to Arni Baldursson, Edward Humphrey and Simon Blackett for generously donating these days to the River Dee Trust. The River Dee Trust would also like to thank Phillip J Fleming and the Tor Na Coille Hotel, Andrew and Jenny Cox and The Loch Kinord Hotel and Nigel and Fiona Franksand at The Darroch Learg Hotel for providing bed and breakfast to the visiting anglers during their weeks stay on Deeside.
Fishing at Crathie
The lucky winner of the Premier River Dee Fishing Week auction lot will be notified at the close of auction and information about the week’s fishing week will be supplied. As this fishing is not generally available it would attract a premium and a guide price for this would be in the region of £4,000. Information about each of these beats can be found on the fishery descriptions page on www.fishdee.co.uk . Good luck to all bidders and thanks for your anticipated support.
