Colin McFadyen – Dalmarnock Fishings Ghillie

I have been fishing since the age of 10 and I am truly hooked on the sport, to the point that I still get excited every time one of my guests are playing a River Tay Salmon.

This is my second “shift” at Dalmarnock Fishings, having worked here for 4 years previously, so there isn’t much in the beat that I don’t know about.  I have also worked as a Ghillie at Newtyle Beat and spent 3 years as a water bailiff.

I have been lucky enough to have fished some of the best salmon rivers in Scotland, including the Dee, Tweed and of course the mighty Spey.
