This fine heavyweight specimen salmon was caught on the middle area of the River Tay during the lovely Spring salmon fishing month of May. The Tay is notorious for big salmon and even in the first week of the 2018 salmon fishing season the river has produced 19 & 21 pounders. This perfect salmon in the photograph weighed in at 27lbs and many like that and bigger will no doubt be caught again this Spring.

One of the salmon which was caught yesterday was a perfect fresh run sea-liced 19 pounder which is the perfect fish for any salmon fisher to catch. The following months are truly some of the best of the entire salmon fishing season and booking early is always advisable as all Scottish salmon beats are capped at between 4 and 8 fishers per day.
