TAKC6Kercock Fishings is a secluded and stunning salmon fishing beat located on the Lower Middle River Tay.  Overlooked by the picturesque hills of the Perthshire countryside Kercock has 2.25 miles of prime double bank salmon fishing hidden away from the noise and stresses of everyday life.

The beat offers private car parking facilities and has a modern, comfortable fishing lodge with a fully equipped kitchen, full sized dining table and separate ladies and gents facilities.

On arrival at the beat you will be welcomed by our highly experienced Head Ghillie,  Gary Harkin, who will ensure you and your party are well looked after during your visit. With experience of fishing all over Scotland and being the Head Ghillie at Kercock for over 10 years Gary has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to salmon fishing.

We can provide tuition in all aspects of salmon fishing and Spey casting, a personal ghillieservice and use of the boat – all of which must be booked in advance.

With excellent fly water, easy wading and also pools suitable for spinning Kercock has something suitable for everyone from the novice to the experienced angler.

The 5 year average for catches is 163 salmon and grilse. Kercock is very promising for catches from early summer through to September and October.

Kercock offers salmon fishing for up to 10 rods per day.  There are 8 rods available for let with 2 rods retained in-house which are only occasionally fished.  Any party wishing to book the full beat may also have the option to take the 2 house rods, at the same cost per rod, to give exclusive use of the Kercock beat.

Kercock is conveniently situated, being only 14 miles from Perth, and 5 miles from the local village of Stanley. Glasgow and Edinburgh are only 55 miles away. There are a variety of hotels, country houses, self-catering cottages and B&B’s in the area for your accommodation needs.
