Overview

Tilbouries is a most attractive stretch of river with 1.5 miles of right bank fishing and 12 named pools offering excellent fly fishing water, with pools to suit all water heights.

There is a full time ghillie, Nicol Paton, who is on hand to offer advice and assistance. Nicol is also a qualified casting instructor.

The beat has a well-appointed comfortable fishing bothy with a wood burning stove.

Some pools are particularly suited to beginners and children because they have excellent wading, or easily fished from the bank.

Cairnton pool is fished from the bank as is the Island Stream.

The famous Lawson pool, reputed to be the longest pool on the Dee, provides excellent easy wading.

Tilbouries run leading to Alfred's Pot is a delightful piece of streamy water that produces good numbers in the summer.

There is also the challenging Alfred's pot which can be very productive.

Tilbouries also offers a great opportunity for anglers who want to challenge themselves to cast a longer line.

The beat produces good numbers of very fresh salmon because of its close proximity to the sea.

Tilbouries supports the river Dee conservation code and requests adherence to the code guidelines.

All fish caught, whether salmon or sea trout, to be handled with extreme care and not to be removed from the river.

Popular fly patterns at Tilbouries consist of Gold bodied Willie Gunn pattern, Tosh or black and yellow tubes in the spring and Sunray Shadow and Monkey flies utilised to good effect when fish are seen running. When the water warms up and anglers utilise floating lines then the patterns that do well include Flamethrowers, Cascades, and Silver Stoats and shrimp patterns. When the water cools in the back end the popular Tilbouries Shrimp comes into its own.
