Tayside is known as the region of rivers because it contains many magnificent rivers large and small, tranquil and tumultuous and most of them have abundant stocks of fish.
Tayside also contains many lochs, huge highland lochs like Rannoch, Tay and Ericht, smaller hill lochs such as Freuchie, Lee and Kinnardachy and of course a large amount of smaller lochs, reservoirs and still waters. Wild brown trout and grayling fishing throughout the area is particularly accessible and reasonably priced. Tayside’s Atlantic salmon fishing is amongst the best in the World. There is good coarse fishing to be found in several areas, specimen pike, perch, roach and tench and other species. Sea fishing on the Angus coast offers an interesting variety of species and a number sea angling charter boats operate from the ancient fishing town of Arbroath for those who do not wish to experience the beautiful beaches and cliffs.
