Benchil is situated just below the village of Stanley and is one of the most picturesque beats on the River Tay. Benchil Spring Fishing is about five miles above the tidal reaches and offers many different types of pools to fish.

This beat can fish well in the spring in high water conditions as there is a large area of rapid water at the top of the beat thus making Aitken head a particular hot spot for resting springers.

Benchil offers a good opportunity for fly fishing in lower water especially in the Long Shot. The beat fishes six rods, has one boat and a fishing hut looking down the Long Shot.

Benchil Spring Fishing
has ten named pools including Skellies, Aitken Head, Plain Water, Ship linn, Long Shot, Tail of Shot, Ewelundie, White Craigs, Little Shot and Todholes.
