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.

Really this is the easiest cast or all to perfect if you've a good instructor by your side who's talking logic backed sense to you.

The Most Perfect Salmon

In the cold water conditions of early Spring when there's still out of condition 'kelts' in the rivers (which are salmon that have spawned through the previous weeks or months) there's always the chance that a perfect fresh run Spring salmon like this one will be lying in amongst them. While kelts will often be eager to dunt or take your fly it's very important that you treat each contact with suspicion as often the take from a perfect Spring salmon also commences with the most subtle of nudges.

Salmon Fishing On the River Tay

The famous River Tay has many fantastic salmon fishing venues however the middle to upper reaches of the valley where the river terrain opens up has more easily waded fly fishing water than the lower reaches where there's primarily a rock based riverbed with less tapered river margins. 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.
