Newtyle Beat River Tay The Dean's Burn

Here's a shot of The Dean's Burn pool (click to enlarge) on Newtyle taken early Spring 2007. The far bank is the better side to fish in average to high water and is an amazing bank to be on. The natural woodlands and wildlife are outstanding. This pool is fly fishable at medium to low water. A single Spey cast is all that's required when wading down the far bank which is where the bulk of fish travel up through and lie in this pool. It's another great example of a beautiful and productive fly pool on the Newtyle beat. This pool can be outstanding in the Spring as it offers Spring salmon a steady low pressure flow with good depth to hold up in while resting.
