Following successful take-up of my offer of guided days on the River Nith this October (three days have now been booked in the week starting October 8th), I have now arranged salmon-fishing on a further four days the following week (Oct 15th-18th inclusive) at a productive autumn beat further up the river.
With the agreement of the owners of Ryehill fishings just south of Sanquhar, Rab and Margaret Hyslop, I’ll be guiding rods on five named pools there which include the famous Woodend pool.
With its craggy ‘Redrullion’ Highland cattle, Ryehill Farm is in a beautiful upland setting on the River Nith near the town of Sanquhar. It is a quiet, rural beat stretching over ¾ mile of single bank fishing comprising 5 named pools with some good holding lies and fly-fishing water. Spinning and worming is also permitted. Shelter on the beat is provided by two fishing lodges including a main lodge furnished with a 3 piece suite, table and stools.
The upper Nith is a good place to be at this time of the season and often outfishes lower beats, especially in high water. On my last two visits to Ryehill I have caught salmon of 7lb or so and as at Closeburn Castle, I’ll do my best to get you into a fish!
Prices for all my Nith October fishing days inclusive of the fishing and guiding are £180 a day in October with a two-day rate of £300 (October). There are currently seven days available.
If you love summer fishing for sea-trout, grilse and salmon I also have Closeburn Castle guided days available on the inclusive dates July 16-21 at £140 a day (or £240 for two days).
