After a long lockdown (fingers crossed), we have a really exciting challenge for our anglers this summer. #FishDee24, our twenty-four-hour fishing event in support of the River Dee Trust, will take place on 25/26 June 2021. There are only 30 places, so don’t delay and sign up today! #FishDee24 is designed to raise funds for the Trust and to encourage both experienced and novice anglers to fish up to seven River Dee beats in 24 hours. So even if you are beginner, we would love to have you join in.

Only 30 spaces available, so sign up at the River Dee shop today.

Included in the ticket package is catering by Banchory Lodge and Maryculter House Hotel, full support on the day and a chance to win some great prizes. Your pledge to fundraise for the Trust is much appreciated.

When: 25th/26th June 2021

25 June at 2200hrs with a briefing at Banchory Lodge Hotel, fishing begins at 2300hrs and end 2259hrs on 26 June.

Where: Altries, Tilbouries, Middle Drum, Crathes Castle, L. Blackhall & Banchory, Sluie, Commonty.


Fish for approximately 3 hours on each beat, in groups of three, with rest periods for breakfast, lunch and dinner, your personal rotation will be handed out at the briefing.

A prize-giving will follow immediately after the end of fishing on 26th at Banchory Lodge Hotel. Prizes include the honour of making the first cast at the 2022 Dee opening ceremony for the most successful fundraiser.


Through our JustGiving page, a minimum commitment to raise £500 sponsorship is anticipated. All monies will support crucial river restoration, salmon research and education. If you manage to raise more than the target - we will of course be delighted!

We will run a fly casting clinic through Aberdeenshire Fly Fish 50 for less experienced anglers and novices prior to the event.

Anglers under 18yrs must be accompanied by an adult.

You are expected to bring all fishing equipment and clothing that you will require. Please let us know if this may pose a difficulty or ask us for more advice.
