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.

Catch Salmon On The River Tay

Here's the size and beauty of what are often encountered on Scotland's bigger salmon fishing venues. This perfect heavyweight salmon was caught at the end of March on the famous River Tay and was one of two fish virtually identical to one another that were landed by this young salmon fisher on day one of his introduction to Scottish salmon fishing. The Tay is especially well known for big fish and is still the home of the British record salmon of 64lbs.

Hooking A Salmon

One of the most important aspects of salmon fly fishing is knowing exactly how to deal with a 'take' when it occurs as it is crucial you don't react too quickly which will squander the opportunity. Train yourself to ignore the desire to lift the rod or strike as neither are effective. Wait until you're receiving a steady long draw of line off the reel and simply clamp the reel face with the rod pointing down to briefly feel the weight of the fish to ensure a proper hook hold.

Fishing The River Tay In Autumn

The spectacular beauty of the River Tay & all other Scottish salmon rivers should not be underestimated through the Autumn months. On the Tay the chance of a seriously heavyweight Autumn salmon should not be underestimated either as many are present during the Autumn months when big water levels arrive. This perfect early Autumn shot was taken from the Tay's beautiful Dunkeld House salmon beat.

The Value Of Salmon Fishing Tuition

If you take the time to invest in quality tuition in the basic yet proven methods of salmon pool coverage along with an understanding in how to set a hook when a salmon takes then you'll be leap years ahead of the average salmon fisher. There's so much more to Scottish salmon fishing than just turning up with a rod & permit which in my professional opinion is a waste of time. Book a professional 'time served' salmon guide and excel in this fantastic sport.
