Bottom Croy at The Fiddlers Pool Newtyle Beat

Here's the broken stream that flows off the bottom croy at the Fiddlers Pool in high water. With 'The Trap' only yards downstream from here this is a great area to hook salmon in. In low water it is possible to stand on the nose stone of the croy that's here and put a long line out into the middle of the tail of this pool where several large boulders sit. In low water salmon love to lie in and around these stones. In high water like today I would fish close in all the way down from the top of the pool (just above the top croy) to this broken flow that comes off the bottom croy.
I've seen many salmon hooked within 10 yards of the bank here at this water level.
