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.

The Amazing Scottish Rivers

Here's a stunning shot of the River Tay which is Scotland's largest salmon river in length & depth. One of the fine attributes of the Tay is that several huge lochs feed the main river with water therefore even during long periods of dry weather there's always sufficient flow for salmon to run. The Tay is the safest bet in Scotland for suitable water conditions and even after heavy rainfall it doesn't colour up as quickly as the smaller Scottish salmon rivers can often do.

Once you're up to speed with the basics of casting & how to effectively set the hook when a fish takes then an hour or two out in the boat is always a useful inclusion to your salmon fishing day.
