Salmon Fishing in Scotland Logo
Here's young Robbie Fairfull (12) with his first of 2 perfect 20lbs River Tay Spring salmon which he caught on the Kinnaird Beat in rapid succession of one another on the last day of March.
Here's perfect late Spring day on Perthshire's River Tay. Add a bit of lovely sunlight as seen here and you have the perfect salmon fishing conditions. This was the Meetings Pool on the River Tay near Ballinluig in Perthshire.
I love bright light fishing days as they make your salmon fly sparkle and any salmon you catch too! Look at the illuminated detail a little bit of sunshine creates. This perfect salmon was caught on the River Tay near Dunkeld.
This is a tricky unnatural feeling cast for all right handed salmon fly fishers of which the vast majority of fishers are. Mastering the left hand Spey cast like what you see here is simply done by mental mirror cast duplication of what you've already taught your right hand to do! This Spey caster is performing this traditional Spey cast on the Oak Tree Pool (guess why!) of the River Tay near the village of Meikleour in Perthshire.
This traditional River Tay salmon fishing boat is anchored up in the Dunkeld House Cathedral Stream slightly upstream of the landmark Telford Bridge in Dunkeld. You can see the guest casting a fly and while this is done the boatman lets out a yard of rope between each cast which is how the pool is covered.
