Playing A Scottish Salmon
17 Jun 2017
Here's a short video clip of a young salmon fishing visitor who came to the River Tay with his grandfather to catch a Scottish salmon. It's important when you work hard to make a salmon come to take your fly that you set the hook properly and as importantly you play the fish correctly. A high rod position is important for many good reasons as is letting the salmon pull line off the fly reel when it wants to to avoid excess pressure on the hook hold or your fly's leader.
