Knowing exactly where to focus your attention on a salmon river plays a big part in creating a successful outcome. Take a look at this shot of the one of the fine River Tay salmon pools and you'll see that perfect dark deep pool tail water directly above a fast shallower stream. This is exactly where a running salmon will stop after the exertion of swimming up through the fast water. Often however when you hook a fish at the tail of a pool the first thing it will do is a U-turn back from where it came from!

Here's a shot from the middle River Tay which was taken during late Spring when the wild lupins were in bloom. The river environment has always been amazing in Scotland and has played a big part in the attraction of Scottish salmon fishing.

Learning how to approach a salmon pool plays a big part in success as far too many salmon fishers make the big mistake of charging straight into the pool to deeply with their chest waders on without realising the damage they're doing to their chances of success. If you study this picture the correct wading line should be 30ft back from the deep dark water seam in other words a minimum of 2 rod lengths so as not to spook any resident salmon that may be present.

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).
