Salmon Fishing Guides Scotland

Welcome to our newsletter page where Scottish salmon fishing updates will be entered on an ongoing daily basis.

Learning how to fish for salmon correctly is a very important factor as a salmon fishing permit on its own is valueless without the water knowledge, fishing ability & correct salmon fishing equipment levels.

We hope you'll book a guided salmon fishing experience in Scotland and become an entry on this web page.

Scottish Salmon Fishing Opportunity

For me it has always been a monumental 'time' marker in the Scottish salmon fishing calendar as the next 8 weeks are without doubt the most exciting Spring weeks of all as the entire Scottish Spring run of salmon ascend the beautiful Scottish rivers.

Salmon Fishing Conditions

This particular early Spring salmon was caught during exceptionally low water conditions right in front of 2 fishing guests who were complaining about the low water and how it was a complete waste of time to fish! Our salmon thankfully don't read the same fishing books we do as this lovely fish perfectly proved. On the River Tay there's always sufficient water levels for salmon to run when they decide to due to the huge loch fed headwaters of the Tay system.

The Ultimate Scottish Fishing Prize

Here's an absolute peach of a River Tay Spring salmon that was landed during the perfect Spring fly fishing month of May. This was one of two perfect fish that were landed in very quick succession that day as a run of sea-liced salmon progressed up the River Tay. Salmon often are caught in pairs by those astute enough to realise exactly what has occurred when a run of salmon briefly appear and before the opportunity for a second fish has gone.

Deadly Salmon Fly Patterns

When you've spent enough time on the salmon rivers of Scotland you'll probably also realise that two or three different salmon fly patterns tied in two or three different sizes is all you really need to have. The really important component of a salmon fly is having sufficient 'faith' in it to persevere long enough for it to work again. When salmon are switched off there's nothing that's going to change their minds so sticking with what you know works is the best approach.
