THE SALMON FISHINGS
The number of let rods on East Haugh is limited to 6 and any legal method of fishing is permitted.
For salmon, fly fishing is the preferred method. It is the policy of the owners to give booking priority to the previous year's tenants. The owners retain one rod each day throughout the season.
As the Tummel is a large fast flowing river anglers are advised to wear a buoyancy aid, eye protection, a hat and use a wading staff.
ACCESS TO THE BEAT
Left bank -
Approximately 1.5 miles north of Ballinluig, a track is located in a cutting to the left of the dual carriageway directly opposite the sign-posted road junction to East Haugh.
200 yards along this track there is a parking area and beyond that a turning area. DO NOT PARK IN THE TURNING AREA.
Access to the river is via a pedestrian crossing over the railway.
This is about the middle of the beat and the pool adjacent to the hut is Peg Legs Corner.
Right bank -
Access is from Pitlochry via the Pitlochry to Ballinluig road on the west side of the river.
Take the track to Tomdachoille Farm and the right fork (avoiding access through the farmhouse grounds).
Please leave all farm gates in the position you find them.
Please park adjacent to the fishing hut.
The bottom of the beat may be accessed by the track alongside the field.
A parking area is set aside at Moulinearn Pool adjacent to the track.
Please do not drive onto farmland, obstruct accesses or park on agricultural ground.
CONSERVATION OF STOCKS
There is a mandatory catch and release policy in place whereby all fish must be returned to and including 31 March.
In addition, as a condition of let, the proprietors require that ALL FISH MUST BE RETURNED UP TO 31 MAY.
Anglers should not fish with worms during this period.
All salmon and sea trout caught during the let remain the property of the tenant and a true record of catches shall be given in writing to the agent.
Failure to provide accurate details of catches, including nil returns, to the agent within 7 days of the cessation of fishing may result in future fishing being refused.
The agent can be contacted on email@example.com
From 1 June to end of Season:
All hen fish of any size and all cock fish over 10 pounds must be released.
All coloured and gravid fish must be released.
No more than one clean fish weighing less than 10 pounds should be retained per angler per day.
Anglers must not use worms in September or October.
Worming in July and August
During the months of July and August the Board requests that worming should only be undertaken with Circle hooks or Shelton release hooks which are designed to help prevent deep hooking. Contact the Board for details of suppliers.
Tenants are expected to observe the country code and to fish in a sporting manner.
