An exciting opportunity to acquire a four-rod lease on the beautiful River Conon.
- Week 12 (Mid-April) Brahan Fishings (Upper, Middle and Lower beats)
- 4/5 rod lease available to purchase
- Current ten year, week average, 5 salmon.
- Rods for sale together and not separately
The fishings are divided into three beats each providing fishing for a party of 4 rods who rotate over the beats on a daily basis. (Note: A fifth ‘guest’ rod may fish on the Lower Beat when water conditions allow providing one of the five rods fishes the Sluggan).
Each beat has two fishing huts and a character of its own and providing a wide variety of prime fly fishing water. There are a total of 6 boats on the River and two full time Ghillies.
The Upper Brahan Beat is single (North) bank fishing extending approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) from the Junction with the Blackwater tributary down to a point a few hundred metres upstream of the Orrin tributary. The most productive pools are the Junction, Boat, Robert’s and Rowans pools. The Major is fished on a half day rotation with the Lower Fairburn beat.
The Middle Brahan is largely double banked with vehicle access to the North (left) bank. Lower Fairburn share the Aquarium and Kettle pools, the latter of which is fished on a half day rotation, but fishing for the rest of the beat is from both banks with access by boat to the South bank at the Ferry pool. Middle Brahan is the shortest beat of the Brahan Fishings extending for just 1.1 miles (1.8 km) but has some of the most productive pools including the Kettle, Kettle Stream, Lake, Ferry and Russian.
The Lower Brahan beat is approximately 2.2 miles (3.6 km) in length starting below the Russian pool, running either side of Dunglass Island and ending at the railway bridge at Conon Bridge. The most productive pools on this beat include the Rock, Wall and Sluggan, the latter being the top pool on the Brahan beats.
The rods are held in perpetuity and are subject to an annual charge, which covers the cost of ghillies wages, river board levy, maintenance of the bank together with boats and motors. The management charge for 2020/21 is £646/rod per week.
