Craigellachie Fishings is arguably the most scenic Salmon fishing beat on the river Spey. The historic 1814 Telford Bridge provides a magnificent backdrop for those fishing the Bridge pool.
Purchase of a Week 1 rod entitles the owner to fish the opening week at Craigellachie in perpetuity. The days from 11th February (opening day) prior to Week 1 are also part of the rod owners entitlement, a net gain of 12 additional rod days over a 28 year period.
Chances of an elusive early Spring fish have proved greater in opening week; the current owner caught the 1st Craigellachie fish of the new millennium on 19th Feb 00 on a 2” tube fly. The beat produces fish on opening day and, on occasion, the first fish on the whole river.
The fishings extend to approximately 2½ miles. There are 2 beats, each of which is fished every day with changeover at 1pm. Each beat has a well appointed fishing hut with flushing toilet. The fishings include the services of an experienced Ghillie and owners have the use of a boat.
The Spey is almost unique in that the 2nd, 4th, 6th etc. fish may be retained.
The current annual maintenance charge is £106pa. Further details are available from the seller.
2 rods are available for sale, together or individually, at the price of £2,500 each.
