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 12 named pools.
Please note that the beat fishes 3-4 rods per day.
The Beat is FLY ONLY. Flies and tackle can be purchased on site.
Gallery Fishing's is one of the most productive beats on the North Esk and offers delightful fly water.
The beat has benefited from the buyout of all the netting rights on the North Esk. There are NO NETS remaining now on the North Esk. The past 5 year average is 126 salmon and 20 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 and toilet which is located in the middle of the beat. Wading is very easy.
Fishing is FLY ONLY. The beat follows the EDSFB recommendations for 100% catch and release throughout the season. The beat offers good prospects throughout the season, with the spring fishing starting in February, its not uncommon for spring fish to be caught on opening day. The North Esk has a fish counter and recently the big runs of fish have been appearing in June and July. Sea trout fishing has not been utilized and could show great potential with dedicated night fishing.
An attractive modernized farmhouse is available to let together with the fishing, comprising 4 double bedrooms and 1 single. Also a newly converted mill with 2 twin bedrooms is available.
Further details can be obtained from the River Manager Neil Anderson.
