Where to Fish


There are more than a dozen beats on the river and all have good reputations. Unfortunately the better known ones are either let on a weekly basis to regular tenants or syndicated. Among these beats are Cambusmore - with 26 named pools, Lanrick Castle - 3.5 miles of fishing which includes the famous Weir Pool, Deanston Distillery Fishings and Doune Lodge. The lowest beat on the river is the Blue Banks Fishing where the river enters the Forth. Day permit fishing is available on the Town Water at Callander, Blair Drummond Estate - which has the Ardoch, Chapel, Horse Hole and McLaren Pools and the Blue Banks Fishery.


Some of the best fishing is below the confluence of the Teith downstream to Stirling. At this point the river is slow flowing and over 50 yds wide and best fished by spinning. Permits are available on the town water. Fishing is also available from Aberfoyle down to Gartmore Bridge and downstream of the bridge on the Gartmore Angling Club waters.


The East Lothian Tyne is an attractive and secluded river of approximately 30 miles in length, rising in the Moorfoot hills and flowing westwards into Belhaven.
