Going anti-clockwise around the coastline:

Wye
Hants. Avon
Tyne (North)
Tweed
Tay
Spey
Findhorn
Ness
Beauly
Helmsdale
Inverie
Guserain

I think the only other UK rivers where I've fished for and failed to catch a salmon are the Towy and Cothi, though have had sea trout from both - and in my defence I would claim that they were the principal target.

Also another half dozen in Ireland and further afield.

Quite a number of the lesser know in the list are either devoid of salmon nowadays , or mere shadows of their former selves. 🙁
