Kinermony Fishings is privately owned, with around 1.5 miles of right bank fishing with 6 named pools fished by 3 rods. Below Kinermony lies the Aberlour Angling Association and the beat directly above is the majestic Delagyle.

Wester Elchies lies opposite and the fly water is simply terrific. Kinermony is currently fully let throughout the season, and with a 5 year average catch of 188 Salmon, has the highest single rod average above the Craigellachie bridge. Conservation is a high priority and in 2011 we released 92% of our catch.

In the past and previous years Jock has also represented Scotland at International level, and is currently Captain of  team Alba.
