River Dee, Scotland
Just come back from a few days fishing the upper Dee at Glen Tanar, 2 days of blistering heat and the final day of overcast. Hooked and lost a decent salmon, lost a sea-trout (sea-run brown if you prefer) and landed one. We saw plenty of fish moving in the pools and it's lovely water if you prefer a more intimate run, bucket, tail experience.
The gillie is a young (for fly-fishing) guy called Craig MacDonald - very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The accommodation is also excellent and available as a package.
For anyone looking for some quality salmon fishing up that way I'd highly recommend it and happy to go into more detail via PM if anyone is interested.
Still a bit gutted that salmon got away, but I'll put it right eventually.
Tight lines all.
