The Deans Burn Newtyle Beat

Several inches of snow fell last night which is just what the doctor ordered !!! I hope it's the first heavy snowfall of many which should help spring water levels this year.
This video taken earlier today gives you a good idea of the sheer size of the Dean's Burn Pool on Newtyle. In low water there is lovely easy gravel wading in off this bank however the best side to fish in medium to higher water is the far side. A deep channel runs up the far bank which then hits shallow water at the top of the pool. Salmon love to lie in the deep channel all the way down the pool but it also has one or two very good taking areas near the top end of the pool. The far bank on this pool has a perfect feel to it and a great place to spend a few hours especially in April & May when there's a good head of springers in the pool.
