Tay Fishing Boats on the Newtyle Beat

In case you wonder what a ghillie does in the close season well here's one of his tasks. Repairing and repainting the boats usually takes a few weeks of work. They look lovely just now and it will be a shame to step into them with anything but carpet slippers but sadly they'll get well scuffed up before the Spring fishing is through.
These boats are nearly 20 years old and built with larch. They are very heavy which is essential for stability on a river like the Tay which has many moods.
