SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Lower Redgorton is situated just to the north of Perth in charming countryside between the Grampian and Sidlaw Hills. Perth lies about 2
miles to the south where there is a main line railway station with regulardaytime and overnight services to London and the south. The A9 gives fast access to the motorway network at Perth and Edinburgh Airport
(about 45 minutes at off peak times). The Tay is Scotland's greatest river in virtually every respect. It is the longest (120 miles) and the widest. It has the greatest catchment area
(in excess of 2,000 square miles), the greatest number of tributaries and the largest volume of flow. Most importantly it has the largest salmon
catch and the largest fish.
The Tay season opens on January 15th and closes on October 15th. The river has a history of large salmon, the most famous being the 64
lb British record fish caught by Miss Ballantine on 7th October 1922 at Glendelvine near Dunkeld.
The Lower Redgorton is divided into the Waulkmill and Gold Castle Beats and can be fished from the banks, by wading and from a boat. The beats extend to about 1.35 miles in length and include 19 named pools. There is a reciprocal arrangement with the proprietors of the opposite bank (Lower Scone) whereby each proprietor can fish both banks on alternate days. There are 2 fishing huts which are accessible by car. A ghillie is allocated to the Lower Redgorton beats.
METHOD OF OWNERSHIP
The formation of The Lower Redgorton Syndicate has allowed fishermen to secure prime fishing on the River Tay in perpetuity giving them the right to fish for salmon and sea trout during their chosen week. The purchaser of week 5 will be assigned the current owner's
right to 6 rods. Title to the Lower Redgorton Fishings is held in Trust for the owners by the Clydesdale Bank. Further details are available from the selling agents. The fishings are managed by a Management Committee.
Week 5 commences on 20th February in 2012. An annual management charge is levied each year to pay for the running costs of the fishings. During the spring weeks it is at the option of the owners as to whether they wish the services of the ghillie for which an extra charge will be levied. The management charge in 2011 for week 5 was £130/rod inclusive of Vat.
In the recent past week 5 has only been lightly fished and no catch has been recorded during the 5 years to 2010. However in 2011 one salmon was caught in week 5. The ten year average for the whole beat (excluding 2011) is 242 salmon.Up to date details of catches for the whole of the River Tay can be accessed on www.fishtay.co.uk.
