Sandy, here's a very marked blue spot on a gorgeous indigenous Fario trout a friend just caught in France.   :z16



There's a trout in this picture?  :X2

Thanks for all the responses folks! Just the kind of feedback I was looking for.

I'll stick to taking them up "the burn" for a while until they get the idea. Euan hit the nail on the head with my real concern being their breeds (Alsatian and Bullmastiif) but like Euan's Staffie they really are the softest things going especially the Mastiff. I have a 1 year old daughter who takes great joy in pulling their lugs and generally just being a pest but they have never shown the slightest sign of aggression towards her. Granted as Dad has mentioned a lot of that could well be down to mini Hitler's ever watchful eye....

If you do happen to come across a bean pole and 2 lumps on the river please do stop and say hello. I'll either be with the dog's or my old man and one of his mates  :z7

Tanar is worth a cast for sure. Clear, good trout Rainbow and Brown, excellent scenery, good wildlife.
Big 'bows on light line are GOOD fun!

That too, dammit!
My wife now does home boarding and the results are astounding with visiting dogs. She is a witch!

Pronie loch is well worth a cast from bank or boat. Can be difficult fishing but rewards hard work. Too many years since I last fished it but permit details should be online if you search. Good chance of observing a master fisher at Pronie. . . . that will be an Osprey ;-)

Jim,

what you need from Steven is to borrow his wife, she may be small but Stevens German Shepherd and Bull mastiff do not mess with her, give her your dog and it will behave.

Hi there, I,m new to the forum but will do an intro later. Saw your enquiry and as I've fished most of the lochs in that area thought I'd pass on what I learned. Loch nan Eun, long walk in, quite steep prior to the loch itself. Worth the walk though. Used to camp overnight to make the walk worthwhile. Despite its high altitude there is a good head of trout 1/2 to 3/4 trout. Kate McLaren, Mallard and Green, Mallard and Claret. Very occasional larger fish. Permit from Invercauld  Estate Office in Braemar. Lochnagar is a very acid loch with resulting very small trout. Loch Vrotachan holds the largest trout of the lochs in the region with several 2 lb fish taken every year. Invercauld Estate for permit or Ballater Angling club who manage the loch and have a very nice fishing hut there. Loch Beannie is another Invercauld Estate water worth a cast. Loch Callater is a very good water for pike on the fly but no trout to speak of. Hope this helps.

That is a heap of fantastic information that I didn't expect to get! Thanks a lot! I'll be getting in touch with Invercauld once i've sorted out some holidays from work.

Looking at the OS maps there is a good few other lochs around this area such as Sandy Loch, Dubh Loch and Loch Buidhe. Do you know anything about fishing these waters?

Fully excited to get up there now!

Agree with RBreid. I too have fished all of these lochs for many years. Iain Cameron and soundmixer Euan and I have fished Beanie a couple of times recently and had great fun with trout in the 12 oz to pound mark.

Unfortunately Beanie, Callater and Vrotachan will probably have to wait due to being that little bit further away. Hopefully (if all goes well) will be moving to Aboyne within the next month so will have a decent base to get places. Any other recommendations around the Aboyne area? I hear Tanar is meant to be pretty good.
