Newtyle Beat River Tay Neck of Cottar

This is a video taken high up in the neck of the Cottar pool. The dark water close to the opposite bank at the start of the video is The Trap. This lovely glide that runs into the Cottar from the centre of the picture to the camera is a lovely low water fly stream. There is a salmon lie just in front of the camera where the water deepens from approx 3 ft to 7 ft. Although not visible when this video was taken there is an island that appears 1/3rd of the way across from the far bank. When the top stones or more are showing on the island then that's the time to fly fish this lovely stream.
