Here's big George Clarke from Washington DC holding one of 5 perfect fresh run salmon he caught that morning near Stanley on the River Tay in July. While we were starting I gave George a refresher on the Spey cast and while doing so the first fish of the day was hooked!
This perfect Spring salmon leap about the Ash Tree Pool on the Kinnaird Beat like a dolphin before finally being coaxed to the landing net. It's great to watch a fishing guest play and land a perfect salmon on the fly rod.
That 'first salmon' smile is recognisable at 100 yards as I've witnessed it hundreds of times over the years when brand new salmon fishers experience success on day 1 of trying out this glorious pursuit. This fish was caught on the River Tay near Dunkeld.
Here's guided fishing guest Tom Wellman with a perfect Summer salmon that was awaiting his fly high up at the neck of the Mike's Run Pool of the River Tummel near Ballinluig. This salmon fought tremendously in this fast water pool before we could get the situation under control via the landing net.
This fine fish was caught while commuting this River Tay guided salmon fishing guest downstream in the boat by flicking a spinning lure over the stern of the boat and letting it flutter in the stream. The lure was deployed slightly above where there was a sharp river bed drop off from 5ft of water down to 20ft at the Rock Pool on Upper Kinnaird. Overall lure troll time to cover this salmon lie is 45 seconds and this fine Tay salmon hit the lure after 15 seconds.
This angler's wife had purchased a gift voucher for his Christmas for a guided day with me on the River Tay in Perthshire. He only had previously fished for trout and at the end of the fishing day at 5pm after landing 4 perfect fresh run salmon that he reckoned the trout fishing is more of a challenge! This beautiful fish was number 3 from the 'Guay Pool' near Dunkeld.
