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.

Lunch Beside The River Tay

A day out in pursuit of a specimen wild Atlantic salmon on Scotland's biggest and most famous salmon river is a great experience whether you're successful or not. What can make the day even more special is having a Michelin starred chef lunch ready and waiting in the fishing hut at 1pm for you and your colleagues. I can assure you that fantastic food tastes even better when overlooking a salmon river and especially one as glorious as the River Tay!

Salmon Landing Nets

An important part of salmon fishing kit is indeed the landing net which all salmon anglers or their guides should be carrying at all times throughout the course of the fishing day. While there are many different designs and styles of nets available these days the most important part is having a net frame that's fitted with a fish friendly small gauged mesh bag which protects and stabilises the salmon prior to release as shown in this photograph.

Where To Look For Salmon

If you take a close look at this shot you'll easily spot the most sensible side of the pool to fish from where there's a tapered gravel bank leading into the deeper less turbulent side of the main channel where salmon are very likely to be holding. My approach on this type of pool would be with a low position so as not to break cover and a targeted fly to hit the centre of the heavy deep channel allowing the fly to swing over the likely salmon holding zone to the left side of the channel.

The varying moods of the salmon river are hypnotic and the beauty of the riverbanks will completely captivate your soul which will only be shattered by that first electric tug on your fly reel when a salmon decides to cooperate. This is the moment that is so addictive in Scottish salmon fishing and the inevitable accompanying adrenalin surge.

Fishing Huts In Scotland

All quality Scottish salmon fishing venues benefit from an onsite fishing hut which is there for the salmon fishers to gain shelter during lunch and for meeting at on arrival in the morning. Each Scottish salmon fishing hut has its own unique characteristics which make them fascinatingly different and in most cases they command an excellent position overlooking one of the venue's main salmon fishing pools.
