Cottar Pool Newtyle Beat

Here's one of my personal favourite high water fishing areas on Newtyle. You can see the line of alder trees opposite then there's a small, medium sized and large tree on the grassy bank. The significance of these trees are that there are large boulders 25 /30 yds out opposite the 3 trees and some smaller stones out from the line of alder trees above. The flow here just eases back slightly from the faster water upstream. In high water these lies hold salmon and from the opposite bank the flow for the fly is simply awesome. What your seeing on this video today is permanantly replaying in my mind !! There was just over 4ft of water showing on our gauge when I took this video.
