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.

Catch A Perfect Spring Salmon

There's no mistaking the fact that a fresh run Scottish Spring salmon is the most treasured achievement in fresh water angling and especially if you've managed to coax it out on the fly. The River Tay in Perthshire is a great venue to achieve this on as the Tay has a very consistent run of Spring salmon these days. Follow this link for detailed information on our professionally guided River Tay salmon fishing package.

Hooking Scottish Salmon

One of the most important parts of Scottish salmon fishing is understanding exactly how to deal with the take from a salmon and why you should never ever react too quickly. Thousands of salmon hooking opportunities are lost on the Scottish rivers each year because this simply and logical skill is not known by anglers or taught properly by inexperienced salmon guides. Follow this link for more information on our quality assured Scottish salmon fishing guided days.

Fishing Your Salmon Fly Correctly

There's a huge difference between swimming your salmon fly optimally down through a pool in a controlled manner or just letting it do its own thing in the steam. True success in Scottish salmon fishing is achieved by taking total control of your salmon fly and focussing 100% on exactly how it is behaving from the moment it lands in the river until it's time to be recast again. Take your salmon fishing approach seriously and learn exactly how to be effective.

Salmon River Fishing Stealth

Learning how to approach a salmon pool plays a big part in success as far too many salmon fishers make the big mistake of charging straight into the pool to deeply with their chest waders on without realising the damage they're doing to their chances of success. If you study this picture the correct wading line should be 30ft back from the deep dark water seam in other words a minimum of 2 rod lengths so as not to spook any resident salmon that may be present.

Scottish Fly Fishing

Here's a beautiful shot of a classic Scottish fly fishing stream on the River Tay. To my mind what you see here are perfect salmon fly fishing conditions with an overcast sky but still a glimmer of sunlight which creates a sparkle on the surface of the water. There's always a huge sense of excitement & expectations in the air for me when these conditions occur and they nearly always result in a fish or two. Learning the river moods is an important part of salmon fishing.

Playing A Salmon On The Fly Rod

The most important thing of all after you've hooked a salmon is to maintain a high rod position at all times during the fight. A salmon will head down deep while it's in danger and will try to rub the hook out of its mouth on the riverbed as I've observed on many occasions. Keep a good bend on the rod throughout the fight and look for some deep slow moving & snag free water to land the salmon in once you've connected. If you've been taught how to set the hook correctly the fight should be stress free & enjoyable.
