Salmon Fishing Trip
A 6 day trip, fishing in faster flowing rivers. Due to the dangers of river fishing a safety course will be provided.
All safety equipment will be provided, including floatation devices and walkie talkies. We will teach the popular
‘step and cast’ tracking technique, as well as teach how to flush out the salmon.
On some of the rivers there are fishing huts for you to have a much needed break, and a ‘wee dram of whiskey’. Atlantic salmon are considered to be the river Marlin, and the kings of Scottish rivers due to their high levels of SPE (speed, power, endurance). So prepare yourself for a long, brutal battle.
Please book early due to a large number of booking requests.
All equipment will be provided: 10ft 9 weight rod, size 9 silk reel, low progressive 6-7kg line, and all of the flies.
Due to the fast flowing rivers being in private land, you will need to add an additional £100 in order to gain access to them. The rivers in question are rarely fished in and have been perfectly maintained by Mother Nature, therefore you will be expected to behave with respect to the river so to preserve them for many generations.
Generally we use small flies for slow, clear, warm waters, and we use larger flies for faster colder murkier waters.
Season: The majority of rivers open in early February until mid-October, with the best times being from mid-April to September
