The Tay is one of the three classic salmon rivers of Scotland and boasts the UK record fish of 63¼ lb. Tributaries of the Tay rise in the near the west coast and flow eastwards into the loch.Loch Tay is one of the largest expanses of water in Scotland and extends 14 miles to the village of Kenmore where the Tay proper starts. This picturesque village, is located in the upper catchment where the Tay proper flows out of the loch.

The river runs through the Taymouth Castle Estate. This was once the residence of Lord Breadalbane. Today much of the estate is devoted to a mature 18 hole golf course set beautiful parkland through which the river flows. The Tay is joined below this estate by the River Lyon a true spate river. The river becomes much wider and wilder.

The town of Aberfeldy is the next port of call. Here the water is controlled by the local residents so visitors permits are easy to come by for trout and coarse fishing.

The village of Grandtully (pronounced Grantly) is the next population centre. It is also famous for its falls, which have become very popular with canoeists and rafters - some say to the detriment of anglers. In reality there is little friction. Rafters are generally well behaved and stay clear of anglers.

At Ballinluig the River is joined by the River Tummel. From this point down the River is very large and even a good caster won't reach the far bank.
