Upper Drum and Lower Durris

Fishery

This wonderful beat is located just to the east of Banchory beside the Park Bridge and consists of 2 miles of double bank fishing.

Under new ownership, this beat has not been openly marketed for many years, it is now looking to attract new tenants; to this previously hidden gem on Deeside.

The beat has 10 named pools including the famous Kirk and Keith pools. The beat affords visitors quality facilities with 2 well-appointed fishing huts including cooking, heating and toilet facilities.

The beat is known by the regulars as "the carpet slipper" for its easy wading and access to the river. The beat is well maintained with recent upgrades to the banks and access road.

The beat is managed by an experienced and popular ghillie Mr Terry Paton who is an excellent fly caster who excels in helping his customers with assistance and advice as required to ensure they maximise their pleasure and experience of the beat.

The beat has some excellent fly fishing streams and pools and can be productive all season when conditions are favourable.

The beat has a history of producing occasional big fish which ensures a very loyal customer base who come year after year to the beat.

The beat has some areas that would suit and levels of fisher, where some constructed walkways provide assistance

The beat is close to the town of Banchory where there is a good range of accommodation, restaurants, bars and local shops. This makes it a very popular destination for families to visit where there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the local hospitality and facilities.

As a new beat to FishDee there is sure to be significant interest and early booking is essential as the beat requires 48 hours notice when booking.
