Presented by Sir John Scott, by kind permission of Lady Clare Hurd:

This is an excellent opportunity for one person to experience a day’s haaf-netting on the River Nith at Glencaple.   This unique form of fishing dates back to the Vikings, the word haaf coming from the Norwegian word for heave.  The 15 ft net, standing like a small goalpost on three legs, is carried into the river and is supported by the fisherman.  The haaf-netters stand in a line with their nets across the estuary and catch fish coming up on the flood tide and down on the ebb tide.  The fishing at Caerlaverock has been kept historically by the owners for the benefit of the Estate workers and local villagers.

The successful bidder will fish with Johnny, under the guidance of the Caerlaverock Keeper, on the flood and ebb tides.  Johnny Scott wrote and co-presented the successful BBC TV series, Clarissa and The Countryman.  Lunch will be provided.  A pair of chest waders is essential.

Fishing will be catch and release, in line with conservation regulations.

To be taken in the summer months of 2019 between June and August, by arrangement.

Presented by Sir Edward Dashwood, Bt.:

Abercothi Estate has three rotating beats containing forty pools on the River Towy (Approx 1½ hours from Severn Bridge). This is some of the prime water on the best sea-trout river in the UK. Generally the sea-trout are fished for with a fly at night (although spinning is permitted in high water). The beats produce some 300-400 sea-trout averaging over 3lbs each season, including many into double figures. Prime sea-trout time is June to August although there is also a good run of salmon, especially in September and October.

A professional guide is available to assist (tips only) so beginners more than welcome.

When:

Days to be agreed with the Purchaser to be taken April to October 2019.

Accommodation:

Accommodation is not included but there is a Fishing Lodge which may be rented subject to an additional charge and availability.

Presented by Finegand Estate Ltd Glenshee, Perthshire:

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 - date by arrangement with the donor, who can also provide the successful bidder with a list of local accommodation.
