Description

Craigendinnie provides generous fishing for two rods throughout spring and summer, in wonderful farmland and woodland scenery. The beat has 3.6 kilometres (2.2 miles) of fly-fishing, with 17 named pools on the south side of the Dee. There is a bank sharing agreement with the Aboyne Castle beat opposite, that allows fishers to enjoy both banks. This arrangement ceases at the end of June when the Craigendinnie rods remain on the south bank during the summer months.

The catch data is for fish caught on the south bank only.

During the summer only the south bank is fished and the beat is split into an upper and lower section. The two Craigendinnie rods change between sections at 1pm each day. The lower section is fished first on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the upper section fished first on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The two Aboyne Castle rods fish the beat vice versa. Both sections of the beat have classic fly fishing pools with sufficient pools to fish new water morning and afternoon. Due to the fast flowing nature of the Upper Dee and the variety of pools, the beat can be fished at all water heights.

There is one hut on the beat and a riverside track. There are also paths along the riverside on both banks that allows access to all parts of the beat on foot. Aboyne bridge is the main crossing point between banks and is at the bottom of the beat. Fishing is available by the week, part week or on a daily basis. The beat is managed by Glen Tanar Estate.

The beat has fly fishing only and a complete catch and release policy.

Self-catering accommodation is available on the estate. For further details on the fishing or accommodation please contact the estate office or look at our website on www.glentanar.co.uk.
