Exclusive salmon and sea trout fishing, comprising of two beats on the renowned Dochfour fishings. Located on the upper reaches of the River Ness, four miles west of Inverness.
There are 6 named pools on each beat.
The beats generally hold fish for most of the season but this depends on the time of year.
Loch Ness acts as a filter and as a result the river Ness never colours in a flood and it's rare that you can't fish because the water is too high. In a dry summer we can still fish in low water which helps slow fish down when they're running upstream.
From June onwards 15ft rods are normally used with floating lines and sinking tips a common set up.
Cascades, Ally shrimps and Silver Stoats catch the most fish with Sunrays and Hitch flies becoming more popular in very low water.
Spinning is allowed down to the ghillie's discretion. Wading is easy and chest waders are required even in low water. Boats are used to fish some of the wider pools.
The first fish are normally caught in March, and the spring fishing has been excellent in recent years with May generally the best month. August and September are traditionally the best summer months, though October now becoming a good month too with fresh fish.
