Edradynate Fishing

Custom Tied Flies runs the salmon and trout fishing on Edradynate Estate. The salmon fishings cover a beat of just over 3 miles on the River Tay. There are six named pools – Tom-an-Droighne, Cluny Ferry, Poltewan, Glide, Church and The Pot – of which Church Pool is the best known and is probably the most productive on the Aberfeldy to Strathtay stretch. The Edradynate and Upper Grandtully water is one of the best known beats on the Upper Tay

The beat consists fishing of 2 miles left bank fishing and 1 mile right bank.


The beat contains a mixture of strong flowing pools like the Church Pool and some faster streams. Both fly and spinner are probably required to get the best out of the beat, especially with higher water, but there are some excellent runs for the fly.

Fish can be expected on this beat at any time of the year. It holds spring salmon right from the start of the season but at that time probably benefits from a lower water. In summer the grilse arrive, often bars of silver straight from the sea. Then with autumn spates autumn fish push up from lower down the river. The river is mostly easily covered from the bank or by wading but a boat and ghillie is required to reach some of the more awkward but really fishy places. The scenery is also tremendous with extensive mature woodland fringing the banks against the splendid backdrop of the Strathtay Hills.
