    Default Novice salmon angler needs help!!

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping that someone can help me to get into a bit of salmon fly fishing this year.

    I have been reading up on methods, flies and how to cast etc but the one issue that I find the most diificult to try and solve is where to fish? When I have asked at the local tackleshop it nearly seems that I need to roll a trouser leg up and produce the special hand shake before I will be told any information!!

    I live in the Cheshire area so the Ribble and the Lune are probably closest although I would also like to try and fish the Eden in Cumbria.

    Any suggestions and club contacts would be greatly received.

    Cheers

    IR you should join the Price Albert Fishing Club. They have loads of fishing on Lakes and Rivers including the Ribble etc. I will PM a friend who is a member and he will fill you in with the details.

    Have you thought about some of the rivers in North Wales? they would be a similar distance for you to travell as the Ribble and Lune.

    Both the Ribble and Lune are good salmon rivers but days tickes are hard to come by as most of the stretches are controlled by clubs and syndicates. The EA have stretches on both rivers that they sell day tickets for. I have the details for the EA beat on the Ribble but not the Lune but a little bit of searching google should point you in the right direction.

    Most of the clubs on the Ribble have a waiting list of anything from 1 to 3 years or more and it would be very unusuall to just walk into a club and if you can then you have either pulled all the right strings or the alarm bells should start ringing. Here are a few links to a couple of clubs that offer good fishing on the Ribble

    Prince Albert has fishing all over the place and is very good value but you will have to wait about 3 years to get in.

    Hope this is of some help to you.

    Default Many thanks

    Lads,

    Many thanks for the replies. Really helpful information and by all accounts a bit of waiting may be required as well. Time to practice the spey casting then I guess!

    Cheers
