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.

Salmon Fishing Instruction

In Scottish salmon fishing anglers are all mainly self taught and have picked up fishing skills and in many cases bad habits too. In salmon fishing the most important skills are being able to present a salmon fly and control that fly, separate each swing of the salmon fly effectively and exactly how to set the hook when you effectively cover enough water to earn that moment. If you want an effective start in this business book a salmon fishing guide to show you how.

Be One Step Ahead Of Your Salmon

When you hook a salmon regardless of whether it takes off like a train downstream or fights right opposite you should be scanning the riverbank terrain for a suitable area to play & eventually land the fish. That type of area should have a gentle flow out of the heavy stream with some reasonable obstruction free depth. You'll land a salmon much more quickly if you can do this rather than allowing the fish to kite about in a heavy water pressure stream.

Playing A River Tay Salmon

It is important that you fully understand the correct ways to play a salmon and that includes knowing how to identify an area of the riverbank which is suitable for this purpose. It is also important to know exactly how much pressure to apply to the fish and the correct rod angle. If a salmon is played correctly they are always successfully landed assuming you've been effectively taught how to set the hook in the first place which from what I've seen in over 3 decades is the biggest grey area of all in Scottish salmon fishing.

River Tay Fishing Huts

There are many differing styles of hut used these days and many of the newer styles are of Scandinavian design origin. For many years I operated out of an original Victorian hut which had formally been a curling pond hut before it was transported to a new location beside the River Tay and a full renovation carried out. Nothing beats having a well appointed salmon fishing hut to change or dry out in beside a wood burning stove and a kettle.

God's Finest Fishing Arena

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.
