Image

Well I do hope all our readers have had a wonderful festive season and we wish you all a happy new year and tight lines for 2014. No doubt you are now starting to plan ahead on how to get rid of this winters cabin fever by going fishing. The River Dee salmon fishing season opens on Saturday the 1st February and the first full week commences on Monday 3rd February. Now is the time to book your fishing whether for one day, 3 days or a week at one or more fishing beats, with or without your friends. There is a full current list of availability located at this weblink  which offers a very tempting range of fishing opportunities for you to get out and enjoy some sport on the river bank. Its been a very mild and open winter so far and early season fish could easily be found as far upstream as Aboyne.

Now as there are a lot of tempting opportunities it is important to ensure you get suitable accommodation sorted out and there are a good amount of accommodation providers at www.fishdee.co.uk with hotels very popular in the early part of the season in and around the Banchory area. This is because historically the main run of early season fish are located in the Banchory Area. Hotels such as Tor Na Coille, Banchory Lodge, Raemoir House Hotel, The Burnett Arms, The Douglas and the ever popular British Legion will see many anglers meeting at the end of the day around the bars discussing their days sport, successes & failures and what tips they can pick up from other anglers about the latest killing pattern of fly etc.

Fishing Availability-February 2014

There is quite a lot of fishing added to the FishDee website for February 2014 where you can get your opportunity to shake off cabin fever and go fishing. FishDee are optimistic for an improved run of Spring salmon in 2014 given the progeny of big runs of salmon in 2009/2010 should be returning home. There should be decent runs of 2 and hopefully 3 sea winter fish.
