The 'Island Pool' Today

Here's a panoramic video taken half way down the 'Island Pool' this afternoon. In the 70's I was fortunate to spend many summer holidays on Newtyle and Willie 'the ghillie' Laird used to bring me down here. In those days there were some huge salmon (30/40 lbs class) sitting in the deep water in front of the big mossy rock that you see near the start of this video. Willie always maintained that this was the best low water spot for a really big fish. A few years ago one of our regular beat fishers hooked a beast of a fish in the exact same lie. The fish sent back a straightened hook after 45 minutes of slowly cruising up and down the pool !!!!!
