Haddo House Angling Club


Ellon,, Aberdeen


Haddo House Angling Club has approximately 6 miles of water, this includes 3 contiguous beats on the spectacular River Ythan, all of which are within the middle or upper section of the river.


The topmost beat is known as Gight and comprises of single and double bank fishing. The southern bank extends down to the next beat called the Methlick water, then on to the next beat called The Tarves water. The Tarves water was originally reserved for guests of Haddo House, but is now being managed by Haddo House Angling Club.
All beats can be very productive, Gight is excellent in high water, where its deep pools encourage the running fish to stop, an added bonus is the spectacular surroundings of the trees, large rocks and wild life, it is not unusually to see Deer, Heron, Hawks and the occasional Otter.
The Methlick and Tarves waters fish better in a dropping water, these beats have a mixture of deep pools and faster water which is excellent for fly fishing.
In ideal weather conditions the waters will produce Sea Tout from May onwards, largest Sea Trout in 2016 was 7 lbs taken on a Stoats tail at the end of May. Salmon start running from the end of August onwards, September and October being especially good, Salmon of over 20lbs are recorded every year, the local Ythan View Hotel has a photograph of a 38 lb fish taken on the Ythan.

There are car parking areas along the beats (9) spaces.

Worming is only permitted in September and October.
