Thankfully the cold north wind has eased up and it seems to be improving our chances, as evidenced by yesterday’s catches on the Tay.  A stunning 11lb fish made a leap out of the water half an hour ago in Bridge Pool in front of the new lodge, then met with a 45g Namson Toby,  Black and Silver – long-tailed sea lice on board, a real beauty.

The new fishing lodge  is now finished!  Complete with kitchen & toilet facilities and a perfect view of the Tay.  Pictures to follow shortly!

Our visitor Joost was thrilled to land his first salmon today, a lovely 12lb fish from the ever productive Bridge pool and his son Hugo didn’t have long to wait, with a 5lb catch of his own shortly after – nothing is better than seeing the delight that comes with landing your first salmon.

Despite bright sunshine, the magic hour around four pm saw another catch at Dalguise – a nice 9lber caught on a Cascade variant at Bridge Pool.

Sorry for the poor photography but was in a hurry to get fish back into water!

The new improved fishing lodge is nearing completion and should be finished for beginning of April. We can’t wait to get it comfortably set up so we can help our guests toast a satisfying day on the balcony looking upstream at one of the best views on the Tay even better with a dram in hand.

The lodge will be complete with kitchen and toilet facilities so our guests can enjoy a leisurely lunch with panoramic views from the balcony. The ghillie’s wife Samantha can do a very nice lunch in the lodge or alternatively guests can bring their own and make use of the kitchen facilities.

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests.

First springer of the season for Dalguise today, a solid 19lb fish caught in Guay pool on a 1 1/2″ Skull Cascade fly.  More fish sighted at Bridge and from the casting platform – all in all, an exciting start to the spring run.Dalguise 14.03.16 1Dalguise 14.03.16 2

23rd July 2015

The last few weeks on Dalguise have been an exhilarating mixture of fishing and discovery.  We’ve had guests from the USA, France, Africa, Russia …. and Glasgow!  All have appreciated the beauty of the beat and frustratingly there have been many fish hooked, but not landed.  Sharpen your hooks, people, the fish are out there!  We have taken advantage of quiet days to make some improvements to the beat.  It was great to have a visit from Mike Smith, whose long association with Dalguise means his insights are particularly valuable.  A tour of the beat left us with a startlingly long to-do list, but also an insight into how previously untouched areas of the water could be opened up to our guests.  As a result, we’re opening up the Otterstone bank and the second boat will be installed shortly giving us ideal coverage in periods of low water (ironic in view of last weeks rain!).  We’ve begun this work with the invaluable assistance of Derek Strachan, the most instinctive fisherman of my acquaintance, who generously gave his time (and chainsaw) to open up new areas of the beat that we can’t wait to investigate.  With July almost behind us, we are looking forward to the finest part of the season on Dalguise, and we hope to see you soon.

Tight lines,
