Do you yearn for the Earn?

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - PROPERTY -

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.
