Newtyle Beat River Tay The Ferry Pool

This photo (click to enlarge) is of Newtyle's Ferry pool. This pool accounts for many early salmon on Newtyle in both high & low water conditions. I remember in the spring of 2006 starting here at 9.30 am one morning and landing 5 fine springers within 2 hours. These moments occur on this pool however it does not get fished as often as it should as it our furthest away pool on the beat. This pool fly fishes well in low water where wading is possible at the neck & tail of the pool. In high water a spinner covers the taking areas better which are within 20 yds of the right bank. Many fish stack up in this pool in late spring and running fish love to stop at the tail of the pool after swimming up through 'St Mary's Stream' below.
