Has anyone been salmon or trout fishing in this area of north Scotland and have any guidance? I expect to be up on holiday in the near future?

I have! 

The Naver. You can buy day tickets in the Bettyhill Post Office. My wife’s uncle has a small estate overlooking the beach 1 mile from here. 

Let me dig out a few pictures. We visit him every year.

@Dave at keltonI’m up there now, fishing this week with my boys. They bought a fly each from House of Bruar as we stopped for breakfast and I was picking out a knife (Opinel no.8). I’m sure the flies are tied to attract the eye of my children as much as any trout! 

Day tickets are at the post office (now the Bettyhill store is closed). First come first served, on day of purchase only. Post office officially opens at 0800, staff arrive from 0740 and so start selling once it’s open. £25 per day for the river (upstream of the iron bridge ‘Naver bridge’), maximum two tickets issued per day. £5 per day for the estuary (below the iron bridge), unlimited tickets. At peak times there will be a queue in the morning! Locals can fish via club etc so it’s all holiday types camping out for a week’s serious fishing.

I have lost two opinel knives in the last two years. Cannot believe the price of them now. Steel feels thinner too.

Yes had two days on the river and two on the estuary. Plenty of fish in the river but left empty handed. Missed two fish on pool 2. Tight lines
