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.

When you book a professional salmon guide for the day you also book extensive river salmon holding experience knowledge which positions you in the optimal areas where salmon are most likely to be present. This is one such 'hot spot' on Scotland's famous River Tay.

Selecting A Salmon Fly

There are so many different patterns of salmon flies available these days it can indeed become mind boggling as to which pattern and size to select. Over the decades I've been involved in this game i've narrowed it down to 5 patterns that are very consistent salmon catchers through the different seasons and water conditions of the year. There's no need to carry a suitcase of salmon flies around with you and a carefully selected box of no more than a dozen flies in different sizes is more than adequate.

The River Tay Opening Day

Today January the 15th annually marks the opening of Scotland's premier salmon fishing venue the River Tay. Thousands of dedicated Scottish salmon fishers will ascend on the Tay today with ceremonial delight that their fabulous river is now open again. With the recent mild weather Scotland has experienced paired with superb current water levels there should be a few perfect Spring salmon caught up and down the river today although the main Spring run doesn't appear until mid March and thereafter.

The Ultimate Fishing Prize

There is no fishing experience that compares to the capture of a wild Atlantic salmon on a double handed fly rod. The reason I say this is because there's much skill involved in the use and presentation of the fly via a Spey Cast in the first place unlike the 'hands free' trolling or spinning a lure. The dynamics of the salmon fight on a fly rod is far more exciting too than using a stiff boat or regular spinning rod. Last but not least the absolute beauty of a wild Atlantic salmon is and always has been totally unbeatable.

River Tay Fishing Huts

There are many differing styles of hut used these days and many of the newer styles are of Scandinavian design origin. For many years I operated out of an original Victorian hut which had formally been a curling pond hut before it was transported to a new location beside the River Tay and a full renovation carried out. Nothing beats having a well appointed salmon fishing hut to change or dry out in beside a wood burning stove and a kettle.

The Mighty River Tay

There is a great sense of awe and anticipation when you take a good look at Scotland's most famous salmon fishing river. Even during low water conditions the Tay is in a league of its own for width & depth of channel and this fabulous river never gets too low where salmon cannot run unlike other shallower Scottish salmon rivers which struggle during low water. With only a few days left to the 2020 opening day this is indeed an exciting time of the year.

Salmon Fishing Instruction

In Scottish salmon fishing anglers are all mainly self taught and have picked up fishing skills and in many cases bad habits too. In salmon fishing the most important skills are being able to present a salmon fly and control that fly, separate each swing of the salmon fly effectively and exactly how to set the hook when you effectively cover enough water to earn that moment. If you want an effective start in this business book a salmon fishing guide to show you how.
