Newtyle Beat River Tay The Rock Pool

Here's a video of the 'Rock Pool' (first) and 'The Boil' (second) in big Winter water conditions. The water level on the Newtyle gauge today was approx 4 ft when this video was taken. You can just make out the huge back eddy created by the Boil stone out in the middle of the river. Today in the bigger water is where you would expect a fish or two to be holding in the Rock Pool which is the water shown in the video (on the same bank as the camera) at the start of this clip. Often salmon lie in here close to the bank when the water is high like it is today. In lower water conditions you would'nt think you were looking at the same pools. They both transform into gentle classic fly streams.
