Upper Redgorton

River Tay, near Stanley. From the Craigs (boundary with Benchil beat) downstream to the mouth of the Shochie Burn. The upper part is the famous Fishponds beat, the lower half is Luncarty (west side)/Knowesbank (east side).

The beat fishes double bank from the start of the season until the end of April when the boat is taken off and it reverts to single bank until the end of June.
