Aberdeenshire Dee records excellent 2010 season
From figures provided by the beats on FishDee.co.uk it is clear that the Dee fished well in 2010. The beats on FishDee recorded 6,712 fish, which over the last few years has represented on average 78% of the total river’s catch. This means anglers on the Dee will have caught around 8,600 fish which is 44% higher than the previous 5 year average.
The Dee is a very good example of modern river management ranging from radio-tracking studies with the involvement of local school children to 100% catch & release.
Congratulations to all!

Knowing what is being caught on a daily basis is really interesting and extremely useful for fishermen contemplating a day's fishing. It is time the Spey gave us these figures. And why not?
Only four beats on the Spey publish their catches on FishPal (I think):
Abernethy Angling Association 118 fish
Grantown Association 417 fish
Craigellachie 309 fish
Probably about 10% of the catch.
Wester Elchies used to show monthly catches - why not now?
What gives with all the secrecy?

For the 10 000th or so time
The Spey is predominately let on a weekly basis so giving out daily catches would be somewhat a waste of man power.( But I'm sure if the SalmonAtlas with the RSAA wished to provide the money I'm sure something could be done) FishSpey was tried, and I worked harder than anyone to make it work, it failed, it's dead and gone, finished.
The Spey will have caught more than last year but less than the five year average. My guess based on the figures I have heard. When I have the total catch from all the beats the catch will be reported on the Spey Board Website. http://www.speyfisheryboard.com/visi...y-reports.html

We could easily provide free of charge a catch reporting system that Spey beats could use - a bit like those used in Norway:
Laksefiske i Orkla. Laksebørs levert av Orklaguiden AS
I'm serious, it would take me very little time to do this. Just say the word - seriously!
BTW: years ago I fished Delagyle and loved one particular pool - Deleane - is it still as good!
