Newtyle Beat The Alders Pool (top end of pool)

This photograph (click to enlarge) is of the upstream end of 'The Alders Pool'. Where the treeline starts is the actual starting point for fishing from. The riverbed here is made up from small stones and gravel and is easy to wade. 20 yards out from this grassy riverbank is a deep channel of approx 6 ft in depth. In this deep water are a number of very large boulders which are present all the way down to the tail of the pool a 100 yards below. Salmon love to sit in and around this deep water channel and are caught in this pool at all water heights throughout the season. This is another lovely fly pool on the Newtyle beat.
