Fishing

Fisherman’s Row will welcome thousands of anglers to the banks of the Tay again this year with some new and exciting features for 2018.

As well as the favourite attractions, there will be the Fly Fishing Mall dedicated to the sport and showcasing popular stalls from 2017 as well as some new outlets. The layout on Fisherman’s Row has been developed to include the Fishing Village; offering a more open outlook to the river.

Fly Fishing Village

Promoted by Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Magazine who have gathered top fishing traders under the one roof to provide an interesting array of products, services and promotions. The Scottish Ladies Fly Fishing Association, supported by Glenda Powell, will be in attendance, offering advice and assistance on the river and at the nearby dry casting area.

Casting Clinic

Once again, we have GAIA fly casting instructors and guides on hand who can teach you how to cast the fly or will help you iron out any existing casting problems. The Casting Clinic is located on the river, away from the crowds, and you can choose a male or female instructor using top quality ORVIS equipment
