Here's the water gauge today, the river has been rising most of the day and had reached 3ft 5" by the end of the day. Mr Charlie McDonald ghilling in my 2nd boat landed a 8lb springer this morning in the ferry pool on a harled tomic. A rawner was also landed by Mr Lewis Wilson on a harled tomic.

Here's Mr John Watt with his big baggot landed today in Laird's Bank. This fish fought very hard for 25 mins before coming to the net, i think both myself and John were a tad disappointed when the fish turned out to be a baggot. Well done on another excellent day John landed 4 baggots/rawners.

The brave souls that turned out on opening day. A great day was had despite the conditions when the river rose very fast in the afternoon. 6 baggots/rawners were landed on the beat today. A special well done to Mr Robert Galbraith who landed the 1st fish of the beat. Robert caught a baggot on the fly from the bank.
A special thank you to Sarah-Jane for providing an excellent lunch.

Hi, My name is Martin Ritchie. I have taken over from Jock as Head Ghillie on the Beat. I am very priveliged to have been giving this opportunity to follow in Jock's footsteps on one of the most beautiful beats on the River Tay. I'm really looking forward to continuing Jock's hard work and hope to keep the beat moving forward in the right direction. I look forward to welcoming you all back to the beat in 2009. As we begin a new chapter on the beat, I hope the late Willie 'the ghillie' Laird (Newtyle Ghillie 1934-1984) looks over me and brings both myself and future guests good luck.
