Despite bright sunshine, the magic hour around four pm saw another catch at Dalguise – a nice 9lber caught on a Cascade variant at Bridge Pool.

Sorry for the poor photography but was in a hurry to get fish back into water!

The new improved fishing lodge is nearing completion and should be finished for beginning of April. We can’t wait to get it comfortably set up so we can help our guests toast a satisfying day on the balcony looking upstream at one of the best views on the Tay even better with a dram in hand.

The lodge will be complete with kitchen and toilet facilities so our guests can enjoy a leisurely lunch with panoramic views from the balcony. The ghillie’s wife Samantha can do a very nice lunch in the lodge or alternatively guests can bring their own and make use of the kitchen facilities.

We look forward to welcoming you and your guests.

First springer of the season for Dalguise today, a solid 19lb fish caught in Guay pool on a 1 1/2″ Skull Cascade fly.  More fish sighted at Bridge and from the casting platform – all in all, an exciting start to the spring run.Dalguise 14.03.16 1Dalguise 14.03.16 2

The last few weeks on Dalguise have been an exhilarating mixture of fishing and discovery.  We’ve had guests from the USA, 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.

A fantastic start to the week, this time it’s Stephen Betts from Kirkintilloch who catches his first ever Salmon. A fine 13lb hen fish from the Bridge Pool on a copper and silver Salmon fished upstream.

Stephen was so pleased with being taught to fish that he returned the favour ……. And gave me a haircut in the Hut! Another Dalguise first 😉

John Geddes decides to fish on a bit last night and what a call, his 30g copper and silver Salmon is nailed in the Bridge Pool by a 24lb’r!

Another good day for Finland, with yet another two salmon coming to the net. So, the score at the end of day 2 is Finland 4 – 0 Scotland, with Matias Juranto (15 years old, another Dalguise First ever Salmon) landing a Hen fish of 11lb, she was caught right in front of the Hut in the Bridge Pool on a Norwegian Lure called a “Bach Spesial” and expertly landed by the Party Leader Toni Kakkuri (www.kakkuri.fi). The second of the day fell to Jari Woulle, Jari landed a cracking 14lb Cock fish in the Bridge Pool as well, this time caught on a Copper & Red 20g Toby.

I had a feeling it was going to be one of those days today, with one of the guests being broken twice!  But thankfully a late arrival in the book today making this potentially a very memorable May matching last years tally for May (fingers crossed we get another couple this week!), with Tony McCabe landing this cracking 15lb’er, caught in the Guay Pool on a Kylie Shrimp size 8 fished on a sinking tip.
