1 1/2 Right
Approximately 1 1/2 miles of which 1 mile is single bank (right hand) and 0.5m is double bank, with 14 named pools
Please note that the beat fishes 3 rods per day until August when it increases to 4 rods per day.
However in the earlier months this can be increased to 4 if all 4 rods booked by one party.
Gallery Fishings is one of the most productive beats on the North Esk and offers delightful fly water.
The beat has been steadily improving for the past 10 years such that the 5 year averages have now hit 180 salmon and 40 sea trout which is a good return for a 3/4 rod beat.
Access is easy with well-maintained banks, which also show a profusion of wild flowers in season. There is a well-equipped fishing hut which is located in the middle of the beat. Wading is very easy.
Fishing is normally fly only, but spinning may be allowed in adverse conditions. The beat offers good prospects throughout the season, with the spring fishing having been greatly enhanced by the removal of the nets until May and the catch and release rules applying until end May. This is leading to a rapid recovery in the numbers of salmon on the beat in the early months.
Sea trout fishing has not been utilised and could show great potential.
An attractive modernised farmhouse is available to let together with the fishing comprising 4 double bedrooms and 1 single. Also a newly converted mill with twin bedrooms.
Further details can be obtained from the river manager.
