Overview

Murthly Beat 1 is one of the best fly fishing waters on the Tay.

Both the Upper and Lower Beats mainly consist of swiftly flowing runs and pools which all have a good draw on them, ideal for the fly. Fly fishing is the preferred method of fishing unless the water is high.

In 2024 the beat is fished Monday, Wednesday and Friday on the Low Water and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday on the Top Water.

These beats fish well throughout the season. Many spring salmon seem to make the first stop in the Murthly area and so a fresh springer can always be expected. Then in the summer the grilse fishing can be first rate. There is usually a good head of fresh grilse and conditions are perfect for the fly. Then given a lift in the water big catches of back end fish can then be made in the autumn.

The beat is set amongst stunning woodland scenery with impressive stands of mature Douglas Fir and other species giving the whole beat a very grand feel. There is one ghillie on the beat and one boat but much of the river can easily and safely be fished by wading, especially in low water. There is also a comfortable hut on each beat with full facilities. Guests will be looked after by ghillie, Donald Tritton
