    Scunnered as I am and will continue to be in larger spadefuls until I can get a cast again----------at anything with fins, I had a look through some websites tonight. I came across this recent fish which looks an older fish to me. That's not what interested me though, it was the spat that has...

    Well, what a difference a week has made, things have progressed even further than even I anticipated. There can be NO ambiguity about the decision on wither to fish in this current 3 week lockdown. BUT, and i,m surprised it happened so soon, I,ve already seen a post on Social media on Thursday...

    well those of you who fish the forth/teith system might like to know that next season Mark's the end of a once glorious fishery the now draconian self imposed rules , make these rivers now less attractive than ever , these rules are over the top and not founded on solid evidence, they...

    Hi folks, thanks for letting me in! I've been an angler for nearly 50 years and a fly angler for 40 but never fly fished for Salmon. The time has come for me to do something about it. I spend a lot of time in North Devon so will be looking to try my luck on the Taw and Torridge mostly. I hope...

    Unfortunately the B & B owners where I normally stop, have been struck by illness, and not accepting bookings. Could anybody suggest a B&B or reasonably priced accommodation within 30 minutes of Corbridge / Hexham, who are reasonably angler friendly? I think I may have asked this before; but...

    NYLON OR FLUOROCARBON, A ROLE FOR BOTH? For years, nylon or copolymer has been a firm favourite among salmon anglers for leader material when fly fishing. The old-fashioned nylon is reliable, stands up to stress and abrasion well and is also great when it comes to tying knots. In recent years...

    We are now moving towards the end of April, and more spring salmon are entering our Scottish rivers on a daily basis. Late April and May can be the prime springtime on many of Scotland's rivers. Hopefully, good catches of Spring salmon will be made over the next six weeks, so many anglers have a...

    It was another week of bitterly cold weather across Scotland, with biting northeasterly winds, frequent snow showers, and very little sunshine. However, conditions have turned milder over the weekend and hopefully, this will be a sign of things to come. This winter seems to have been unrelenting...

There are many different types of spoon including the Toby, Salmo Toby and Blair spoon amongst others. These lures are successful throughout the course of the season whether that that...

    It felt positively spring-like around some parts of Scotland during the early part of last week. This was in stark contrast to a bitterly cold weekend where easterly winds predominated. On Tuesday afternoon some places saw temperatures climb to a balmy fourteen degrees. With all the recent...

    During the early spring months, often river levels are high. This, of course, is because of the weather conditions. From January through to March, the Scottish weather can be quite unpredictable. Regularly, we get heavy rain, and this can lead to there being high water. In addition to this, if...

    Easter is now almost upon us. This year, Easter is during the last weekend of March and so is relatively early in the calendar. During most years, the Easter period usually marks the beginning of the prime spring salmon fishing in Scotland. Salmon enter our rivers in ever-increasing numbers at...
