Booking a professional salmon fishing guide gives you the advantage of learning on day 1 the essential salmon fishing skills you need for success in this amazing Scottish rural pursuit.
Many people come into the sport of salmon fishing with little tactical awareness regarding the basic salmon fishing skills that are needed for success and remain on a self taught path that will yield little rewards as far as successful salmon captures are concerned. Personally I was fortunate to have 2 almost legendary mentors Willie Laird (Tay Ghillie 1930-1985) & Peter Anderson (Word Champion Fly Caster) who opened my mind at an early age as to the importance of having a good grasp of the basic salmon fishing skills that are vital for success in this fantastic sport. Learning how to use a salmon fly rod, move effectively on the riverbank and knowing how to set a salmon fly hook are 3 basic yet vital skills.
Catching salmon has little really to do with luck and is much more about effective salmon pool & water column coverage with a solid understanding of how to react to a salmon take when it occurs. Don't leave you success ratio to chance and get with a salmon fishing professional to shorten your learning curve. If you're serious about achieving success in this amazing sport you need to book a professional salmon guide who's been in the business long enough to be able to teach the basic fundamental salmon fishing skills. The 4 major Scottish salmon rivers (Tay, Dee, Spey & Tweed) are covered by our professional guide service.
