The Derbyshire County Angling Club Ltd own a beat on the river South Esk in Scotland, known as The Aldbar Fishings.
It offers members a good chance of connecting with one of those elusive Silver Tourists.
Rods for this water must be booked in advance, it is free for full club members, guests are welcome but there is a charge.
Until a several years ago the river suffered from coastal and river netting. The netting was bought out by the Riparian owners and over time the river is now recovering.
Though season starts on 16th February, it would be realistic to suggest Springers should be in the system by about mid-March. Though there will be chance of Kelts from opening day onwards.
In early May there can be a run of slightly larger Sea Trout (around 4lbs) Whilst there will be spring fish running through all the time, the Sea Trout should start coming in June and through July.
Grilse usually start showing in late June and will carry on through the summer.
Summer Salmon will start in late May and carry on through the season.
By August the Sea Trout will start getting a bit “coloured”, but may still provide good sport.
In September, the Salmon will be coming in to spawn and it is not unusual for them to be “coloured” when they make their run up the river.
