Membership of the PDAA offers some of the best-value salmon and trout fishing in the country. Beats for 2019 include Rome Croy, Fishponds, Benchil, Pitlochrie, Dalguise, Upper Farleyer and Findynate on the River Tay, Stirling Council fishings on the Forth and Teith, and BRDAA water on the River Ericht.

There are few clubs that can equal the level of angling provision that we offer (approximately 6000 rod days per season) for an an annual fee of just £200 (plus £5 joining fee). Senior citizens who have been a member for at least one year qualify for a discounted rate (£160), youth members (aged 17 to 21) pay £40, and junior members (16 and under) are free! (NB These are 2019 rates. Membership fees are reviewed annually.)

The association is actively seeking to recruit new members – for more details see About PDAA, or apply online using our Membership Application Form.

The annual membership fee – there are no additional daily fees, except for trout lochs – provides access to some of the finest salmon fishing on the Tay and its tributaries, including unlimited access to the club's own beat at Logierait.

For comparison, a day ticket for beats such as Murthly or Upper Redgorton (Fishponds) costs from £25 at the start of the season up to £100 and more in September and October.

Joining PDAA could not be easier (download an application form, or apply online). Although originally aimed at Perthshire anglers, full membership is now available to all, no matter where you live.

The Association has a Child Protection Officer and there are a number of members who hold the PVG certificate (Disclosure Scotland). One of the aims of the Association is to encourage parents and children to enjoy the shared experience of angling.
