Ends in:04 May 2018 12:00:00 BST (bidding ended)

Presented by Finegand Estate Ltd Glenshee:

An excellent opportunity for two rods to try this small but easily fished river in beautiful scenery.

The Lot is for a single day, and this is fly only. The river fishes well from June onward. Each beat is approximately 1½ miles long and 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.
