The Cottar Pool Newtyle Beat River Tay

Here's the Cottar Pool today with just over 3 ft of water showing on the gauge. This is now the perfect water height for fishing off the green bank on the opposite side of the pool. When the water is half way up the jetty virtually the entire 2 mile beat fishes with the exception of 2 pools.
When we get good water like this (with mildish weather) in February or March you can't keep my fly out of this pool as there's always a really good chance of a 'springer'. These were the same water conditions we had last February when we were fortunate to land 7 springers to 16 lbs on Newtyle.
