The Deveron ranks fifth in Scotland in the number of fish caught annually, and holds the record for the UK's heaviest fly-caught salmon. There are 24 named pools on the estate, covering approximately two and a half miles of river - all but 900 yards comprising double-bank fishing. The beat is excellent fly water, with a good variation of pools and rapids. The River Isla joins the Deveron at one of the best pools at Avochie, the Junction Pool.
Fishing the Deveron
Both day tickets and full weeks are available for between one and five rods. Either email us direct, or contact Henderson Country Sports, which manages bookings. Accommodation can be arranged either in the main house or flat.
The beat has two fully-equipped fishing huts, with basic cooking facilities, log burners, storage racks, and lavatories. There are also two further strategically placed shelters. A plan of Avochie Fishings can be found below left.
Caring for the river
Avochie works closely with the Deveron, Bogie, & Isla Rivers Charitable Trust, ensuring responsible fishing and riparian management. The Morrison Trophy is awarded each year for catch and release of the largest fly-caught salmon of the season.
