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.

The Spring Salmon Fishing Prize

This is what a multi sea winter fresh run River Tay Spring salmon looks like and the accompanying smiles that goes along with the capture of one. This particular specimen was caught on the middle River Tay during March which has always been a great month for an encounter with a Tay heavyweight like this.

A Seat Beside The Salmon River

There's something amazingly captivating about sitting on an elevated seat overlooking one of Scotland's famous salmon rivers. When you're actually fishing for salmon it often pays just to sit back and watch the river for 10 or 15 minutes as doing so will often give you the exact position of any resident salmon. A professional time served salmon guide will teach you the correct approach along with various tactics that assist in making a salmon open its mouth!

The Perfect Salmon Fly

There's an amusing saying in Scottish salmon fishing that a salmon will only ever take the salmon fly you've tied on which is correct as I've never had a salmon jump out the river to rummage through my fishing bag for another pattern! The main thing that governs our salmon fly selection choice is faith and this little 'Copperass' pattern most certainly has my vote of confidence as it's accounted for hundreds of salmon captures for myself & for many guests over the years.

River Tay Boat Fishing

Due to the depth & width of Scotland's largest salmon river the use of a traditional River Tay 16ft coble boat can offer a great way to spend some of the fishing day. All River Tay salmon beats have a boat or two and these can be booked individually or sometimes they are shared. Although the majority of salmon fishers like to fish from the riverbank a shot in the boat for an hour or two if water conditions are suitable can add a nice touch to the fishing day.

Take The River Tay Challenge

The early months of the River Tay salmon fishing season are without doubt the best time for an encounter with a heavyweight salmon. Spring salmon are getting bigger these days due to the complexities of oceanic feeding patterns so a salmon like this of 20lbs plus is not uncommon during the Spring months. This particular specimen was one of two perfect heavyweights that were captured by this young man that morning on his first day fishing.

Catching Big Salmon In Scotland

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.
