Searching For The Salmon Lie
18 May 2022
Knowing exactly where to focus your attention on a salmon river plays a big part in creating a successful outcome. Take a look at this shot of the one of the fine River Tay salmon pools and you'll see that perfect dark deep pool tail water directly above a fast shallower stream. This is exactly where a running salmon will stop after the exertion of swimming up through the fast water. Often however when you hook a fish at the tail of a pool the first thing it will do is a U-turn back from where it came from!
