The Hole In The Meadow Pool, Newtyle Beat

Here's a video of 'The Hole In The Meadow' pool at the bottom of our right hand bank on Newtyle. In high water fish can also travel up through the right hand side of the Island Pool below which steers them in here. This video was taken at the tail of the pool and the island is clearly visible near the end of the clip. This pool is too deep at the side to be fly fished from the bank although it can be covered with the fly with use of the boat. It has really good depth in areas and running fish in high water do stop here after pushing through the heavy stream below. It's another lovely pool to fish on Newtyle and often (like Laird's Bank) salmon are hooked close to the bank when the river is high. In early spring during mild weather & high water its a good bet down here for a springer.
