Thanks for an honest report. We've all been through that. What I've learnt from my overseas trips is that one week is very often too short to guarantee you fishable conditions. Unless you're going to the destination staffed full of fish and regardless the river levels you will nail one or two. As an example I can use my last three trips. In 2013 (Alaska) as we arrived the river was running high and dirty and 1st week was very slow but 2nd week when levels dropped was absolutely amazing. In 2014 (BC) we arrived to perfect conditions but by the end of the week the river turned chocolate brown and the game was over. 2015 (BC) was opposite again, 1st week very frustrating and we got washed off, 2nd week saved the trip. Prior to 2013 I was quite lucky and only in 2012 experienced two weeks of difficult conditions backed by very poor salmon run. I know it's all about money but 2nd week doesn't double the price in most cases. The other option is to wait till very last moment and book your trip when conditions are right. This apply to Scotland only but I've been more successful fishing less attractive/productive water in good conditions rather than the best beat with no water or no fish. Ah, bloody salmon fishing. Expensive, frustrating, but I f... love it!
