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.

Learning all the important aspects of salmon fishing from professional salmon fishing guides is the quickest way to gain competence in salmon fishing. From the outside it may well look like all you need is a rod and a permit but that analysis is miles away from the truth. Fishing for salmon without the appropriate skills in casting, movement, setting the hook, fly choice, fly speed & depth, stealth of approach & how to play a fish is a waste of your valuable time if catching fish is important to you.

Here's a beautiful shot of the River Tay with traditional boat at the ready and a double rainbow hovering over the river. This lovely shot was taken close to the village of Logierait which is the nearest village to where the River Tummel enters the Tay. This specific area of the Tay Valley is well worth a go and especially during the Spring months when the Tay & Tummel Spring salmon run is in full swing.

Here's a lovely shot from the River Tay which was taken during March. I love it during the colder Spring months when the sunlight breaks through the clouds and creates a shimmering light effect on the surface of the river as you can clearly see here. That little bit of added warmth in the air goes a long way in early season salmon fishing and can often triggers a take or two from Spring salmon as was the case moments before this fine shot was taken.

There's much to take on board in order to bring your salmon fishing skill set up to scratch if you're serious about catching Scottish salmon.

Here's a shot of an American client rolling out a perfect Spey cast after a brief crash course in this artistic Scottish style of casting. The real benefit of the Spey cast is that it allows you to present a salmon fly to the river when there's insufficient space behind you for a traditional over head cast. In addition to that it's a physically easier cast to perform once its mechanics are fully understood. Treat yourself to a quality introduction to Scottish salmon fishing in 2020.

There's nothing in the outdoor pursuits arena that remotely compares to the sheer excitement that a fresh run salmon brings when hooked on a fly rod.

Here's a beautiful shot of a classic Scottish fly fishing stream on the River Tay. To my mind what you see here are perfect salmon fly fishing conditions with an overcast sky but still a glimmer of sunlight which creates a sparkle on the surface of the water. There's always a huge sense of excitement & expectations in the air for me when these conditions occur and they nearly always result in a fish or two. Learning the river moods is an important part of salmon fishing.
