Newtyle Beat River Tay The Ash Tree Pool

Here's a good shot of the 'Ash Tree' pool (click to enlarge) at the bottom of the Newtyle beat. The Island pool in the background being the last pool on the beat. In front of the tree that looks like a tuning fork there's a deep hole (approx 8ft deep) where salmon love to lie on the edge of the heavy flow in low warm Summer water conditions. A dozen stealthy Spey casts are all it takes from the high bank to see if there's a taker at home !!!. For such a small pool it accounts for quite a few salmon each season.
