Following the success and excellent feedback from our previous spring Salmon course, myself and fishery manager Iain Kirk have secured some excellent Fishing on the river Tay. We will be continuing our summer Spey-Casting and fishing course at Fishponds. This has a good variety of excellent fly water which is also ideal for the purposes of instruction and learning.

The course is aimed at both beginners and those keen to enhance their technique. Instruction will be tailored to suit each individuals requirements and skill level.

Feedback from previous Course.


I had a great time, and I've already booked a day on the beat in early August.

Hi Andrew, the casting course I attended this month was excellent, the day went well with very good tuition and guidance, also, the meal and hospitality was to an exceptional standard, I would highly recommend the course to anyone looking to improve their casting. As a result I would like to apply for a place on your July course if still available 

 Hi Andrew,

 We enjoyed the day and the guidance from you and Ian was excellent, myself and Brooks would like to join you in July.

 Hi Andy, 

  I had a great day at the course last week. It was very helpful. I haven't had the chance to get a cast yet but I'm sure I can remember most of the tips and new casts you taught me.  

 If you do run another course I would love to join in again. If you could drop me an email when you confirm the date.

 Thanks again for a great day and I'll hopefully see you on the river soon.

Please pass my thanks to you, Andy and Iain for a most enjoyable and informative day yesterday at Fishponds. The demonstrations, instruction and advice was everything I hoped for and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The great weather was certainly an unexpected bonus considering the previous days wind and rain.
I can now concentrate in using the instruction to progress my casting.
I attended the Spey casting Course in March 2016, and would highly recommend this. Iain  and Andrew provided excellent advice and instruction in a fantastic setting on the River Tay. The course was excellent value for money and will help anyone wanting to learn or improve their casting.
Had a great day on Fishponds (River Tay). I've been fishing for years but wanted to brush up on casting technique. Andrew and Iain were excellent at explaining the nuances & correcting my errors. Thoroughly recommended.
