Tay – Ballathie

Ballathie is one of the best known and one of the most productive beats on the Tay. It is subdivided into two double-bank beats, Upper and Lower which Ballathie anglers fish on alternate days. Ballathie alternates with Cargill. In 2011 Ballathie anglers will fish the Upper beat on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and the Lower beat on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

There are two ghillies, George and Garry, who are themselves expert anglers, to help you understand the beat, help you with your fishing skills, and hopefully help you catch a fish. There are two boats and a fishing hut on each beat.

The best catches are normally made in the autumn but if the water is low good catches can be made at all times of the year.
