Here's a shot of an American client rolling out a perfect Spey cast after a brief crash course in this artistic Scottish style of casting. The real benefit of the Spey cast is that it allows you to present a salmon fly to the river when there's insufficient space behind you for a traditional over head cast. In addition to that it's a physically easier cast to perform once its mechanics are fully understood. Treat yourself to a quality introduction to Scottish salmon fishing in 2022.

It's always special when you're fortunate enough to catch a salmon on the fly but it is even more special when you catch a fresh run fish that has only just entered the river from the sea. This is a fine example of a fresh run salmon with its ocean colours still in full display. Thousands of salmon are caught each year on the Scottish rivers and often silver fish like this are good takers if you present your fly near them as they are still very much in oceanic hunting mode.

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.

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.

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.
