About Us

Honorary President

Sir W.A. MacPherson of Cluny Q.C.


Blairgowrie, Rattray and District Angling Association (BRDAA) was formed from an existing fishing club in the late 19th century and has successfully supported and promoted angling in Blairgowrie and the surrounding areas. Its objectives are to encourage angling for salmon, sea trout, brown trout and other fish in the river Ericht and lochs in the district.

The Association is proud to be empowered by the kind support of riparian owners. They allow fishing on approximately six miles of the river Ericht, centred around Blairgowrie town on the Blairgowrie Bank. (see map here)

The Association is composed of members with a governing committee of elected officials. Association membership is currently restricted to anglers resident in the old postal codes comprising Blairgowrie and Rattray and district. It currently comprises approximately 300 members, plus honorary, concessionary, and junior members. The club is managed by a 16 member committee, led by President Grant Findlay, Secretary Peter Lock and Competition Secretary Alasdair Campbell. Regular committee meetings are held throughout the year with an Annual General Meeting, normally held in December, receiving the reports on the affairs of the club and appointing officials for the following year.

The Association respects the guidance of our benefactors & requests all anglers on BRDAA river waters to follow the TDSFB code for 2016, as summarised on our rules page.  (The short version of the TDSFB guidelines can be read here, or at the full TDSFB web page here.)
Please note
any changes in the policy of catch & release at the beginning of each season.
Salmon catch returns from all anglers, whether members or visitors, are to be completed at the end of each fishing session or season for submission, no later than November 14th, to the Association secretary. Print your salmon return
