The River Tay below the junction
with the Isla is by anyone's standards a big
river. Even a good caster has no chance of
reaching the opposite bank. Many of the famous
beats are to be found in the lower reaches.
All the salmon which enter the system have
to pass the rods, so your chances are improved.
Needless to say it can be more expensive and
can be difficult to obtain in peak season.
Many regular rods book beats well in advance
so check availability. The Tay Foundation
has now bought out virtually all the nets
on the system so fishing is expected to improve
over coming years.
