Salmon Fishing Guides Scotland
Welcome to our newsletter page where Scottish salmon fishing updates will be entered on an ongoing daily basis.

We hope you'll book a guided salmon fishing experience in Scotland and become an entry on this web page.

Included in all of our professionally guided salmon fishing experiences is 'effective' tuition in the traditional Scottish Spey cast. Our professional river staff are all fantastic communicators of this 'art form' salmon fly delivery technique which allows you the ability to effectively cover any salmon pool regardless of how far you can wade into the river or whatever obstacles are directly behind you that would eliminate the possible use of an overhead cast.

Here's a River Tay salmon boat fishing shot which was taken during a cold March day with these two fishing guests. Although they didn't hold out much hope of a fish both myself and the professional boatman new and openly discussed that we both agreed some salmon action was imminent. Sure enough about 2 minutes after this shot was taken a pristine conditioned 23 lbs salmon was hooked and eventually landed. You will develop a sixth sense for this if you spend enough time on a salmon river.

Learning the delicate skills involved in being astute enough to consistently catch them requires a good teacher with plenty of river experience under his belt and a good pair of ears.

Knowledge of when are the best times to fish certain areas of the Scottish salmon rivers will go a long way towards ensuring you're in with a good chance of success. In very cold early Spring water conditions salmon won't run hard and will hold up in the lower reaches of a river. These days rivers can have slightly milder early Spring water temperatures which allows salmon to run quicker to the middle areas of the rivers before starting to slow down enough to be caught.

This is the best time to look at your diary and identify your Spring salmon fishing dates for 2018 as after Christmas the availability for the best Spring salmon beats on the rivers diminishes.

During the early months of the salmon fishing season regardless of how cold a night it was I always become very optimistic if any sun light warmth appears at any part of the day. This early Spring warmth just assists in taking the chill off the top few feet of the water column which will often make a salmon far more responsive to a fly or lure. Don't fish too deep in the early months and positioning your fly a few inches below the surface and presented slowly is far wiser.
