SALMON FISHING AT SCOTLAND’S MOST FAMOUS SPOT
Spend a meditative afternoon on the picturesque River Tay, Scotland’s most famous river for Atlantic salmon fishing. Using top-of-the-range Hardy tackle and kit, and under the close guidance of a local expert, cast your line and your thoughts into the ebb and flow of the water. Armed with a traditional double-handed salmon rod, you’ll head to the riverbank and learn how to read the water, choose your fly and hook, and ultimately catch – the iconic Atlantic salmon – before retreating to our cosy salmon fishing bothy for a sumptuous fisherman’s picnic.
