Knowing where the best fly fishing is to be found comes with decades of observation and this is one of the many reasons why consulting with a professional salmon guide is important prior to securing your salmon fishing trip.

The River Tay is Scotland's largest salmon river which benefits from a huge loch fed headwater catchment guaranteeing good fishable water conditions throughout the salmon fishing season which runs from mid January to mid October. Annual catches on the Tay are obviously directly linked to actual 'rod pressure' and typically between 4,000 to 8,000 salmon are caught each year making it one of Scotland's most productive and reliable salmon rivers.

The most important thing of all after you've hooked a salmon is to maintain a high rod position at all times during the fight. A salmon will head down deep while it's in danger and will try to rub the hook out of its mouth on the riverbed as I've observed on many occasions. Keep a good bend on the rod throughout the fight and look for some deep slow moving & snag free water to land the salmon in once you've connected. If you've been taught how to set the hook correctly the fight should be stress free & enjoyable.

Even on the most overcast Scottish day the flash of silver and the commotion from a fighting fit fresh run salmon is enough to brighten up the dullest of days. This was the second perfect salmon landed by this fortunate client on a visit to the lower River Tay. Weather conditions don't matter at all to a fresh run salmon if your riverbank movement is good enough to eventually swing your salmon fly in front of one (or two as the case may be).
