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.

Favourite Salmon Flies

A salmon only ever takes the salmon fly you're fishing with therefore you'll never really know if it would have reacted the same way to another pattern. This salmon fly named the 'Copperass' I developed while working as a River Tay head ghillie and it has my full approval as I've witnessed its effectiveness on way too many occasions over the years. Fishing a salmon fly that you've built excellent personal confidence in is an important aspect of Scottish salmon fishing.

Salmon Fishing TV

Several years ago I was very fortunate to get the offer from top producer Chris Webster & top presenter Neen MacKay to participate in a fantastic series of salmon fishing programs which were covering many of our famous Scottish salmon rivers. The Turas a Brahdain series was a massive success and is still re-run even today. Obviously our 'Salmon God' turned up too on the first episode that was filmed on the Tay at Dunkeld and brought two fine Spring salmon with him.

Salmon Fly Faith

There's so many different salmon fly patterns available these day it can be completely mid boggling if you're new to this amazing sport. Once you've bedded into this fantastic pursuit and caught a few fish on a few different salmon fly patterns you'll start to realise that salmon are often not too fussy when they're in the right frame of mind to cooperate. Having the unseen material of 'faith' tied into your salmon fly is the most important part of salmon fly selection.

Salmon River Beauty

Here's a shot from the middle River Tay which was taken during late Spring when the wild lupins were in bloom. The river environment has always been amazing in Scotland and has played a big part in the attraction of Scottish salmon fishing. Do yourself a big favour and rest your soul out in a more natural habitat than the concrete one so many of us have been forced to endure. There's way much more to Scottish salmon fishing than most people could ever realise.
