Cottar Pool Today

video
Here's the Cottar Pool this afternoon from the old croy just upstream of our water gauge. There has been a pod of springers sitting here for weeks now and every 10 minutes one will jump just to keep us on our toes !!!! This is a lovely wee hidden gem of a fly stream (in lowish water) but requires a single spey (left hand up) or a snake roll or double spey (right hand up) to fish it. Long before the hut was sited on the Newtyle Beat (then Birnam Beat) the ghillie's (pre- 1970's) would keep a boat at the old croy.
