Days out on the Dee
« on: February 12, 2010, 21:15:25 PM »
I was lucky enough to be invited to fish Little Blackhall and Inchmarlo this week and managed to get out on Monday and Friday.  I wasn't lucky enough to get a fish but I did get lots of practise at the single spey with the left hand up and made a few decent casts eventually.  Fishing a sinking shooting head took a bit of getting used to.  And deep wading in freezing water was a bit hairy to begin with too.  The Dee was extremely rocks comapred to what I've been used to on the Don so I was glad I had my stick and lifejacket on just in case.  I did manage to get a nice white shoe out of the Roe Pot on Monday so not a total disaster.

A few photos of my days out are below

Hi Matt,

Liked the hog picture.
Pity about the fish but an exciting couple of days I'll bet.

Can I have my shoe back?

And now back to the Don where I'm sure a fish or two might be had   :roll

Nice report Matt.

Was out with Iain at Banchory on Thusday, both a a kelt each which is a bit of a shame, don't really like catching Kelts but was nice to cast a fly rather than a bit of wool!!  Have some pics, will post them when I find my camera lead.

Inchmarlo & Little Blackhall is a nice beat, some of the wading there is a bit tricky in places.  You were unlucky not to have touched a fish as they have had a good start to the season.  Did you fish both banks?

Cheers
