Description

The beat is situated about six miles from the top reaches of tidal water. In the spring with water temperatures being low the salmon tend to have their first stop in these waters because of the Weir at the top of the Catholes thus making it a prime early spring beat.
Catholes offers good spinning and fly fishing from bank in mostly small easily covered pools. Although known as an excellent Spring beat it can offer good Summer and Autumn sport as well.

Catholes fishes six rods per day and has an excellent hut at the bottom of the beat. The beat has 13 named pools including The Slap, The Pot, Gean Tree, Little Cast, Catholes Stream, Black Stones, Back Dam, Lucknow, Eric's, Geoff's, Freddie's Woodside and the Little Head. The beat is situated about six miles from the top reaches of tidal water.


Spring Fishing
The Catholes is one of the best early spring beats on the Tay. It can be fished together with Benchil and Pitlochrie on an alternative day basis until the end of April depending which days you book.

Summer Fishing
During the months of May, June and July day lets are available but without a ghillie and boat.

Autumn fishing
Daily lets are available with a ghillie and boat and bank rods without a ghillie are also available. The beat can be fished with Luncarty on an alternative day basis.

Bob White has 40 years experience in angling for Atlantic salmon and has extensive fishing knowledge on the Tay. Bob can offer tuition in overhead and Spey casting techniques and is a G Loomis pro guide. Tackle can be supplied.
