Full description

Various Timeshare Rods available separately from February to August 1½ miles single and double bank with 15 named pools

The River Dee
The River Dee is a renowned salmon river, rising in the Cairngorm Mountains and flowing for over 80 miles through the Grampian region in north east Scotland before entering the North Sea at Aberdeen. After some difficult seasons, the benefits of a variety of conservation measures now appear to be bearing fruit. There are also signs that the spring run is recovering some of its previous vitality.

The river is administered by the Dee Salmon Fishery Board. The Board sets and directs policy for management of the river’s salmonid fish stocks and their habitat, assisted by advice from the Dee Advisory Group, a panel of scientists and biologists.

The Beat
The beat consists of 1.5 miles of single and double bank with 15 named pools, 7 lying in Ardoe and 8 in Murtle. Many of the pools are very long and able to be fished by more than one angler, generally from the bank. Each beat has a full time ghillie to provide advice about the river and fishing conditions. There is also the use of a comfortable Scandinavian style chalet on the Ardoe beat and a fishing bothy on the Murtle beat.

The Ardoe and Murtle Fishings were sold on a timeshare basis several years ago. Accordingly, the fishing rights are to be exercised in accordance with a Deed of Conditions and Management Agreement. A copy of the Agreement is available to interested parties on request. An annual management charge is made, which covers outgoings principally the DSFB levy and ghillies’ wages. The charge in 2015 for each of the rods is £180.00/rod/week for rods to week 25 and £450.00/rod/week for weeks 26 to 29.
