Salmon Fishing Guides Scotland

Welcome to our newsletter page where Scottish salmon fishing updates will be entered on an ongoing daily basis.

We hope you'll book a guided salmon fishing experience in Scotland and become an entry on this web page.

The Most Famous Salmon Pool In Scotland

While Scotland certainly benefits from some of the most famous salmon rivers and individual salmon pools in the world this one certainly takes a bit of beating. This is the beautiful Boat Pool on the River Tay's Glendelvine Beat which is the exact pool that produced the British rod caught record salmon of 64lbs back in distant 1922 which was caught by lady salmon fisher Georgina Ballantine. On a personal basis I know huge salmon still run the Tay as I've seen enough hard proof over recent decades.

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.

Fishing The Correct Salmon Fly

You cannot beat good old personal faith when it comes to salmon fly selection. If you've no real faith in the salmon fly you're using it will ultimately effect your fishing effort. Faith is derived only from multiple salmon captures so there is no short cut but once you've achieved that and personally witnessed the consistency of a fly's salmon attracting ability then a true life long relationship has indeed begun.
