October’s last guests of the season

Donald Skene took the last 2 days of the season to entertain and thank regular visitors and guests for their custom this year.

As ever, there was great hilarity and a whole lot of fun.  The fishing was mainly spinning to due higher than expected water levels, with the leaves and detritus that come along with it – across the whole Tay very few fish were taken on the last day, however we counted a close call when Scott Connelly had a fish of around 10lb on briefly in the Bridge Pool.

The party enjoyed their haggis, neeps and tatties and a dram and the moothie came out!  The guests were a keen lot this year and wanted to fish, so the moothie went away until next year!!!


Fish, fish, and more fish…..

The foul weather hasn’t put a dent in the spirits of the Briggs party this week, and no wonder.  Five fish so far, and still two days of fishing left….  this is our starter for ten, Jonathan’s grilse from Monday, and more to come!

The Lincolnshire (non) Poachers …

It was banter set to maximum force last week on the beat with Andy, Richard and Dave fishing with us for the whole week. It was the epitome of a memorable fishing experience for them and us, capped off nicely with this lovely 9lb fish out of Guay, followed by another out of Bridge. See you next year chaps!

The Briggs party enjoy the relaxed environment to toast their successful week so far – Jonathan opened the week with a bonny 18lb fish out of Bridge pool, Greg added his name to the scoreboard with two grilse, 3lb and 4lb, from the lee of the Island, and Angus caught a 17lb hen fish from Guay pool…..rods available for this week if you’d like to try your hand…


Tuesday 16th August

Another great day on the beat yesterday. The middle Tay performed well and Dalguise held its own with 2 caught,  a 7lb grilse from Bridge Pool, and a 5lber from Calum’s Corner. Happy fishermen – particularly as the booking was at the very last minute!

August has opened well, cialis sale with our first guests for the month landing a couple of nice grilse.  John Hatt landed a 5lb grilse fresh off the tide on a ghillie fly, buy cialis while shortly after Chris Johnston landed a 4 lb grilse on a 20lb Toby fished upstream.  Both fish were landed in Bridge Pool showing that our earlier work there on opening up the access to the Pool has paid off beautifully.

The last few weeks on Dalguise have been an exhilarating mixture of fishing and discovery.  We’ve had guests from the USA, discount viagra France, Africa, Russia …. and Glasgow!  All have appreciated the beauty of the beat and frustratingly there have been many fish hooked, but not landed.  Sharpen your hooks, people, the fish are out there!  We have taken advantage of quiet days to make some improvements to the beat.  It was great to have a visit from Mike Smith, whose long association with Dalguise means his insights are particularly valuable.  A tour of the beat left us with a startlingly long to-do list, but also an insight into how previously untouched areas of the water could be opened up to our guests.  As a result, we’re opening up the Otterstone bank and the second boat will be installed shortly giving us ideal coverage in periods of low water (ironic in view of last weeks rain!).  We’ve begun this work with the invaluable assistance of Derek Strachan, the most instinctive fisherman of my acquaintance, who generously gave his time (and chainsaw) to open up new areas of the beat that we can’t wait to investigate.  With July almost behind us, we are looking forward to the finest part of the season on Dalguise, and we hope to see you soon.

Tight lines,

31st May 2015

So another month under our belt and Dalguise saw nine fish landed, sildenafil with our biggest for the season to date going to Richard Witt, his first fish a 17lber from Bridge pool. Bridge has been the go-to pool this month, with the majority of catches in May landing there.

It’s been a varied and interesting month, with visitors from Florida, Norway, Montana, Belgium and the length and breadth of the UK trying their hand with our beat, enjoying the greater access to pools after all our bank work this month.

For more than one of our guests a day on the mighty Tay has been a ‘bucket-list’ item long looked forward to, and Dalguise has delivered for each of them the experience they wanted. It’s been great to hear the stories and experiences of our guests, and none more so than Gareth Edwards, Welsh Rugby international, a genuine sporting hero and a gentleman to boot. His party enjoyed their two days on the beat, topped off with a last gasp catch on day two.

A tip of the hat goes to the Anderson Brown party who did all the heavy lifting on catch numbers, with five catches in their week with us.

So, all in all, a grand month, the fish are out there, but they continue to play mind games – Iain Ingledew, occasional stand-in ghillie, hooked the fish of a lifetime from the casting platform, and fought valiantly as it stripped 100m from his reel. He chased it down the bank at a full sprint towards the lodge, only to be left shaking with frustration as it broke him under the Bridge. Next time maybe…

Look forward to seeing you on the beat in June.

Tight lines,
