Taymount is one of the most legendary beats on the River Tay. The water is very varied and has excellent streamy water, ideal for flyfishing in all but the biggest spates. There are also deeper runs and pools where salmon hold up in all waters. There is always a chance of fish on Taymount regardless of conditions, but a rise in the water offers the best opportunities of all.
Charlie Olver landed this beautiful fish last week. After a morning of tuition he managed to hook this fish from the boat on a size 6 cascade. After 25 mins and some mighty runs his prize was landed. A cracking 23lb hen fish. She was safely returned after a few photos. Well done Charlie and i hope this is just the first of many Tay salmon.
