Famous Scottish Salmon Fishing Pools
16 Jul 2017
Here's an upstream shot of the Cradle Pool on the River Tay's famous Ballathie Beat. All salmon that run the Tay have to come through this 20 yard wide channel which has fast water in the neck of the pool which forces salmon to stop here. Often salmon are hooked in this famous Tay pool within only a few casts of starting each day as many of my clients have discovered and one in particular who hooked a 24 lbs fish here on his very first cast of the day.
