Professional Scottish salmon fishing guide advice on why giving a Scottish guided salmon fishing gift voucher is a very special thing to do for a colleague or a loved one.
While there are literally thousands of great gift ideas that you can give to a loved one a quality insight and introduction to a living salmon river is in my opinion the most intriquing gift of all. In this world of concrete and wifi domination our genetic routes as 'hunter gatherers' have largely been forgotten by the vast majority of the human race. When a Scottish salmon river is properly experienced with the added excitement of targetting an adrenalin charged encounter with Scotland's most treasured gamefish it resparks that ancient DNA and triggers the human mind like no other rural pursuit can do. Often after a quality introduction to Scottish salmon fishing the fisher will continue on to develop their knowledge and experiences in this pursuit for the rest of their lives such is the natural potency & pull of the salmon river environment.
Our guided salmon fishing gift vouchers cover the 4 major Scottish salmon rivers which are the Tay, Dee, Spey & Tweed. So wherever a gift voucher recipient is based in Scotland the chances are that one of these major rivers won't be too far away. The River Tay is the most accessible Scottish salmon river for a guided salmon fishing experience as is positioned just over an hour north of the major Scottish cities of Glasgow & Edinburgh. For those who are travelling from outside Scotland there are many good local accommodation options in all of the above river valleys and links to our recommended local hotels can be provided upon request. A fishing date(s) can be arranged prior to purchasing a gift voucher or the date can be decided after the recipient receives their gift voucher for up to 1 year.
Our guided salmon fishing experience packages include a personal & professional salmon fishing guide, full salmon fishing equipment supply (including chest waders, waterproof jackets and life jackets), tactical salmon fishing and Spey casting tuition with a double handed salmon fly rod in addition to seasonally appropriate salmon fishing access to well run & well maintained Scottish salmon river beats. The only items a guided salmon fishing guest needs to bring is warm clothing, sunglasses, thick socks, a sun hat and a packed lunch as everything else will be provided by ourselves.
