The Beat Description
The Culter beat is directly upstream of the Maryculter Bridge and is over 1.7 kms long offering a wide variety of pools to fish. The beat has both banks throughout it's length which ensures the water can be covered effectively irrespective of the wind direction. There is also a drying room and rod box beside the hotel. The beat has been historically lightly fished by a fishing syndicate but was recently purchased in association by the Maryculter House Hotel. Fly-fishing is encouraged at all times and beat Ghillie Mads Pedersen is able to provide first class tuition and advice for novice anglers. The Ghillie is experienced in his field and has fished extensively all around the world for salmon.

Due to the length of the fishing season the beat offers a wide variety of opportunities to suit all budgets. In the spring with cold water, fresh run spring salmon will be found in the pools. In the summer there are opportunities to catch running salmon, grilse and sea trout with night fishing possible. The beat has some super fly fishing pools including the very productive Peter's Pot, Greenbank, High Bank and Camphill. Given suitable conditions the beat has the potential to produce salmon catches in the region of 300 per season. With fishing from both River banks and reasonable wading to cover the lies, the beat will suit the mobile fly fisher with access to the pools from both sides of the river. In late summer the pools fill up dramatically with very large numbers of fresh fish which will spawn in the lower river later in the year.
