The South Chesthill Estate enjoys over 6 miles of single and double bank fishing and 32 pools on the River Lyon, one of the major Tay tributaries, which is a beautiful and varied river. We have caught an average of 37 salmon per year over the last five years (2014 – 2018). The catch is well spread over the spring, summer, and autumn, from March through to October, with salmon caught weighing up to mid 20 lbs.
We offer a 50% discount off the price of fishing when taken with our accommodation. This means you can enjoy salmon fishing for up to 8 rods over 32 pools with prices starting at £495.00 per week (including VAT).
Buying day permits:
Whilst those staying on the estate have first priority on fishing, day permits are often available. Price per rod per beat per day: trout permits £10; salmon £40 (discounts for multiple rods). You would need to bring your own rod and tackle. If you require to hire equipment and a ghillie (guide/teacher) it might be possible to arrange this at extra cost . For more information regarding day permits please contact the Estate Keeper, Ainster Smith on 01887 877 233 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
