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.

Playing A Scottish Salmon

Here's a short video clip of a young salmon fishing visitor who came to the River Tay with his grandfather to catch a Scottish salmon. It's important when you work hard to make a salmon come to take your fly that you set the hook properly and as importantly you play the fish correctly. A high rod position is important for many good reasons as is letting the salmon pull line off the fly reel when it wants to to avoid excess pressure on the hook hold or your fly's leader.
