Do you yearn for the Earn?
From Loch Earn the River Earn flows east for 47 miles before joining the Tay near Abernethy. Two miles of fishing on this important tributary are now for sale. The Kinkell Fishings are situated on the middle Earn three miles north of Auchterarder and seven miles south of Crieff. They extend to 1.8 miles of both banks and a ¼-mile on the right (south) bank bordered by Colquhalzie and Innerpeffray upstream and Trinity Gask and Nether Fordun downstream. They include 32 named pools divided into upper and lower beats fished by up to eight rods, mainly from the south bank. The season opens on February 1 and closes on October 31. There is a five-year average of 172 salmon and 217 sea-trout, with a mandatory catch-and-release policy. Grayling are also a feature of the river. Neither bank is owned by the seller; nor is the site of the well-equipped fishing hut and car park at Kinkell Bridge, which are leased from a neighbouring landowner. However, agreement has been reached to acquire the site and both will form part of the subjects at the point of purchase.
