Default Fabulous fishing opportunity at auction

A truly magnificent opportunity awaits two fishermen who wish to come and experience the cream of River Dee fishing. Through this process they will help the conservation and restoration work of the River Dee Trust and support the Angling For Youth Development (AFYD) charity encourage newcomers to angling. We have secured a week’s prime fishing and accommodation to go to auction to secure funds for both the River Dee Trust and AFYD. The auction will run until closing date of 31st August with the highest bids visible on the FishPal website auction page. Bids can be submitted for this fabulous week online at the FishPal Auction page:

FishPal - Fishing Services - Auctions - Dee Trust - Home or alternatively written bids can be submitted to:
River Dee Trust, River Office, Mill of Dinnet, Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, AB34 5LA

The Premier River Dee Fishing Week comes as a complete lot comprising the following:

12th/13th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Lower Crathes and Upper Durris

14th/15th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Dinnet

16th/17th September 2 days fishing for two rods at Crathie

11th/12th September 2 nights accommodation at Tor Na Coille Hotel Banchory including breakfast

13th/14th September 2 nights accommodation at the Loch Kinord Hotel, Dinnet including breakfast

15th/16th September 2 nights accommodation at the Darroch Learg Hotel, Ballater including breakfast

Fishing at Dinnet

These beats provide a wonderful opportunity for anglers to experience truly world class fishing potential with beats that are arguably the very best that the River Dee has on offer. Last year for instance Lower Crathes rods landed 114 salmon in September, Dinnet 35 and Crathie 92 which gives an indication of how prolific these beats can be. The River Dee Trust is indebted to Arni Baldursson, Edward Humphrey and Simon Blackett for generously donating these days to the River Dee Trust. The River Dee Trust would also like to thank Phillip J Fleming & the Tor Na Coille Hotel, Andrew and Jenny Cox & The Loch Kinord Hotel and Nigel & Fiona Franksand The Darroch Learg Hotel for providing bed & breakfast to the visiting anglers during their weeks stay on Deeside.

Fishing at Crathie

The lucky winner of the Premier River Dee Fishing Week auction lot will be notified at the close of auction and information about the week’s fishing week will be supplied. As this fishing is not generally available it would attract a premium and a guide price for this would be in the region of £4,000. Information about each of these beats can be found on the fishery descriptions page on . Good luck to all bidders and thanks for your anticipated support.
