The Moy fishings are split into 2 beats with 3 rod per beat. Beat 2 comprises 7 named pools and Beat 3 another 6 named pools.
The beats are sold daily as a three rod beat.
This fishing does not have a ghillie and is fished with a Fly Only.
The Fishings are reached via a single track public road and then estate track leading from the A9, it is advisable to have a 4x4 or vehicle with sufficient ground clearance.
The river at this point offers a variety of fishing, and is very different to the type of fishing that you find in the gorge downstream.
The pools are longer and flatter, as is the land around the river. The pools are more typical of a Salmon River with a clear start and end points. The fishing really start from June onwards, but spring fish can be caught earlier in the season. The river does need a lift in level to bring the fish out of the gorge and into this flatter section of the river.
When fishing the pools keep your distance and do not wade too far as the fish are easily spooked.
Summer lines and small flies are the norm for this beat, but if the river is running coloured then adding some brightness to your fly may help.
Beat 2 is fished from the north bank only, with Beat 3 being fished from the north and south bank to the Pollochaig pool and then the south bank only to the march. In order to reach the south bank on Beat 3 a 'bucket bridge' is in place to allow access. This bridge is locked and access instructions will be provided once the booking has been confirmed.

Fished Beat 2 on Wednesday, 30th May. River height starting to drop but still too high. Had a good pull down the Long Pool where I saw a very large fresh fish of around 25 to 30 lbs do a porpoise roll right in front of me but these fish are running hard. River dropping nicely by 31st May and got two nice fish from Polocaig Pool, Beat 3, Moy Fishings. Notwithstanding the improved water conditions, it started to bucket down at around 3pm and the river came up again quickly. Returned both fish (hens) approx 14lbs and 16lb. Both silver and fresh - probably been in the river no more than a week. We are 35 miles from the sea and they are running hard. Using a large GP on sinking line. Saturday, 1st June and the river was up by at least 2 feet and virtually unfishable. We crossed over on the bucket and fished the tail end of Polocaig. Once caught 14 fish in one afternoon in similar conditions at tail end of Polocaig but not this time. All in all, an ok week with 4 fish and 3 returned. June fishers should do very well.
