Fisherman’s Row welcomes thousands of anglers to the banks of the Tay every year. As well as the favourite attractions, there is a Fly Fishing Village dedicated to the sport. The layout on Fisherman’s Row has been developed to include the fishing village, offering a more open outlook to the river where you can enjoy refreshments by the river, the Fly Casting competitions and demonstration podiums.
