Carlogie is a consistently a high-performing beat on the middle Dee.
The beat is renowned for its streamy, classic fly water, which fishes well at all heights, but particularly at low levels when it excels. Situated amidst forestry and farming land this is a beautiful, versatile beat, in a secluded location. The main hut at the famous Calm Pool is a popular lunchtime rendezvous for fishers with cooking facilities and a wood-burning stove.
Carlogie is the uppermost of the 3 Ballogie beats managed by Ballogie Estate.
The fishing extends from Alan’s Pool and Pitslug down the right bank of the River Dee to Boat of Kincardine and provides fishing for 3 rods. The 19 named pools give a fine variety of challenges and difficulties to satisfy all techniques and tastes. Vehicular access is available to all pools. The pools can also all be reached on foot via a short walk on pleasant river paths. Wading is not challenging and seeking depth is not a priority to reach lies. In addition to salmon, the sea-trout fishing is good from early summer throughout the beat. Carlogie is a naturalist’s paradise with a wide diversity of flora and fauna.
A shared ghillie is included in the price of the beat, from 1st February to the last week of June and also from the beginning of September to the end of the season. From June to September there is an additional charge if ghillie services are required.
To assist the work of the charity The River Dee Trust Ballogie will apply a Levy on all rods hired by the week or part week (£10.00 per rod per week),
