The Pools

Go to Dalrawer Dalrawer Island is a popular pool with regulars. A multitude of small islands and channels have formed near the south shore, while the main river comes over a fast glide into a deep run along the north bank. It is fished by wading a third of the way across the flow. The river bottom is good gravel so wading is easy except in high water. Fish lie near the opposite bank, especially near the fence.


Go to Neils Pool Neils Pool is often overlooked. It requires a double handed fly rod or spinning rod as trees come down to the waters edge. In the tail of the pool is a large deep hole as well as a lovely long gravel run. A fish will often lie at the end of the croy pictured above, so it should be approached with care.




Go to Bolfracks House Bolfracks House pool is full of deep holes and boulders. It is virtually impossible to fish from the banks which are steep and overgrown with mature trees. A cast with a spinning rod may be worth a try in high water. In the past it fished well from a boat. There are plans to place a new boat on the pool in the near future.


Go to the Haugh The Haugh is a broad long gravel run with some interesting channels. In the summer it fishes well for grisle. At the tail is a deep hole which often holds a fish. Being relatively quite this pool can hold some very large fish. A fish estimated to be close to 40lb took up residence in this pool in 1997, but would look at nothing! The end of the pool is marked by a steel march.

Go to Home Farm Home farm is a productive pool at the end of the beat. The river make a broad sweep around a bend into a glide. This falls off into a deep pool. The pool fishes well in all water conditions.
