Latest PDAA News
As the spring weather improves and the temperature is picking up, the catches on the river are slowly improving. Yesterday 19 fish were caught throughout the Tay system. Islamouth is producing fish which shows the fish are ready to run up the Isla, and fish have been seen and caught at Links Farm and Kethick Mains on the Isla.I have heard of a 17lb salmon from the BRDAA stretch of the Ericht. Coupar Grange continues to produce so the Ericht well worth a shot. As the temperature continues to rise, the Tummel will come into it's own, and if anything like last year should provide good sport.

Willie Elder, ex PDAA member who lived most of his life in Caputh, and latterly in sheltered housing in Pitlochry, went missing in the winter of 2013/14. After extensive searches of the flooded River Tummel and Tay , no trace was found, except his walking stick on the banks of the Tummel. Willie has now been assumed dead, and his estate wound up. Willie generously left PDAA a legacy in his will, which after discussion, the committee have decided to purchase a memorial bench,with a brass plaque, which hopefully can be erected at Upper Delvine, as a lasting tribute to Willie, who was often seen fishing up and down the length of the Tay, and a staunch PDAA supporter.
PDAA member Iain Bain has submitted a video of him catching a spring salmon on the Upper Redgorton beat of the River Tay. You can view it on our Redgorton page (click here).
