Join us this Friday, 15th January at the Kenmore Hotel to celebrate the official opening of the Tay salmon fishing season. Kenmore has been the venue for this historic occasion since 1947.
There is a sense of expectation as the atmosphere builds to the opening of Scotland's most celebrated salmon season opening day. And whatever the weather, fishermen travel from all over the country to be present at this historic occasion at the Kenmore Hotel, near Aberfeldy in Highland Perthshire.
It is a truly impressive sight to see the fishermen and their supporters line up behind the Vale of Atholl Junior Pipe Band and march to the Tay a few hundred yards away. The fishermen then take up their positions along both banks of the mighty Tay while the final ceremonies are performed on the river itself and a toast is offered to bless the water for the new season.
Once the first cast is made in the middle of the river, the cry goes out "Tight lines" as all the fishermen make their first cast for the new season.
We've got a fantastic few days planned to celebrate the opening of the season at Kenmore - so why not join us for the festivities with either a 2, 3 or 4 night stay.
