On The River Dee You Would Do Very Well To Fish A Better Venue Than The Famous Upper Blackhall Beat Which Is Located 3 Miles Upstream From The Aberdeenshire Town Of Banchory.

 

Commanding the naturally beautiful and perfectly maintained right hand bank of the River Dee through the most private of riverbank settings this perfect salmon beat offers 15 named salmon pools over its 1.5 mile length.

The 'all season long' possibility of a fish in the Morel, Ferroch, Scobboch & Grey Mare pools during most water conditions makes this fabulous River Dee salmon beat a good bet for some 'sub surface cooperation' throughout all of the popular fishing months.

Add into this blend of prime River Dee salmon water close on 3 decades of daily Upper Blackhall salmon observations from Head Ghillie Raymond Sinclair and you have indeed an excellent combination of salmon fishing components to ensure your success rate chances are truly optimised.

The Upper Blackhall salmon beat is also unique from other River Dee salmon beats due to the availability of its 'prime' salmon fisher accommodation named 'The Stables' which comprises of large beautifully appointed dining & sitting rooms, 3 twin bedrooms and 1 double bedroom which very adequately caters for up to 12 visiting salmon fishers, friends or family members.

Jock's Appraisal

If you think middle River Dee and the name Upper Blackhall and Raymond Sinclair don't instantly come to mind then you'll be new to River Dee salmon fishing!

From early Spring through to the late Autumn months many salmon pass through and hold up in the perfect fly pools present on this lovely River Dee salmon fishing beat.

The Ferroch Pool opposite the equally famous Cairnton Beat is a huge and productive Upper Blackhall Beat holding pool in itself before considering any of the additional 14 salmon taking 'hot spots' that make up the magnificent Upper Blackhall salmon fishings. 

There is no doubt in my mind that this lovely salmon beat will continue to mesmerise and hypnotise hundreds of River Dee salmon fishers each year with its unique fly pool flows where at any moment you're in full expectation of a 'time stopping' tug or two on your fly reel.

Catch Statistics

Please bear in mind that annual 'catch records' in recent decades have become an industry driver however they do not take into account the actual 'rod pressure' applied in achieving these figures nor the quality of the angling effort throughout the salmon fishing season.

There's much more to Scottish salmon fishing than the inevitable 'end result' of enough fishers being present or being in the right place at the right time.

The riverbank beauty & ambiance, the hypnotic flow of the stream, the hospitality of the ghillie and just enjoying 'the escape' from normal stressful work duties has always been the primary attraction of Scottish salmon fishing where a salmon was always regarded as a bonus.

For Scottish salmon fishing skill development consider a personally guided instructional day with one of Scotland's finest professional River Dee salmon fishing guides.
