Presented by Finegand Estate Ltd Glenshee: An excellent opportunity for two rods to try this small but easily fished river in beautiful scenery.  This is fly only, and fishes well from June onward.  Each beat is approximately 1½ miles long.  Although it is definitely classed as a spate river, fish can be caught in all waters.  The Shee Water, which is the head waters of the river Ericht and a tributary of the Tay, provides exciting salmon fishing, where sport can be expected to come thick and fast.  It can be extremely prolific – fishing well late in the season.  This has always proved to be a popular lot with our bidders.  To be taken prior to 31st August 2018 - date by arrangement with the donor, who can also provide the successful bidder with a list of local accommodation.
