Thread: Salmo Addiction

  1. #1

    Default Salmo Addiction

    I've only seriously started salmon fishing the last few weeks, and I am yet to catch. With every blank day there is a little disappointment, but by the next time I can't wait to try again.


    I assume this compulsion will get even worse when I finally manage to catch one!!

    It's ridiculous, really. Only gets worse. I actually cannot wait until the back-end on the Tweed.

    Better book some spring fishing now, then you can still have slow fishing, but at least you'll have the greatest aesthetics of the season to fish in.

    It usually goes something like one more cast then one more cast then ok 10 more cast and so on

    As others have said, you think it's bad now. Wait until you've hooked or landed one.

    It's quite possible the first pull will just be that, a pull or drag on the fly. Perhaps you may have a fish on for a short while before it comes off. Don't worry, that can happen more than we would all like. It does though add spice and your heart will be POUNDING.

    I remember my first fish like it was yesterday, when it happens, and it will happen, you'll be in a euphoric shock that can last days. The same will apply when you catch a second, third etc etc.
