Newtyle Beat River Tay The Trap

This pool on the Newtyle beat is called 'The Trap' it is practically in the middle of the beat and is appropriately named as fish enter the classis V shaped tail of the pool from both streams below. This pool has deep water of about 15ft on the inside and shallower streamy water of approx 5/6 ft on the outside where salmon love to lie knowing they have the security of the deeper water should they need it. Often when salmon are hooked in 'The Trap' they bolt down the fast water below which always adds that bit extra excitement to the fight.
This pool is one of the best taking spots on Newtyle.
