River Tay Newtyle Beat St Mary's Stream

Here's a video of 'St Mary's Stream' which is an absolutely beautiful 300 yd stretch of fly water up near the top end of the Newtyle beat. The wading on this pool is dream material and if you look closely at the video you'll notice some white water in off the opposite bank where a submerged croy is located. The best taking area is from this croy down to the tail of the pool. I can't think of a nicer pool anywhere to fly fish late spring through the summer months. In the lower summer water conditions an extra fast sink tip of 10-15 ft is perfect for putting your fly down through the current and near to the salmon to help induce a take. One of the last anglers to fish this lovely pool in 2007 straight away hook a salmon off the nose of the croy. It immediately ran him 300 yds downstream to the tail of the pool where he eventually landed a cracking 14 pound hen fish which he carefully returned.
In high water salmon can be hooked fairly close in on the left bank lying in the thinner water in out of the heavy current.
