    My McClean trout sized weigh net broke a few weeks ago when the bolt which holds the net assembly onto the handle sheared. It appeared to be a M2.5 bolt which I though would be simple to find but which turned out to be simply unavailable from the usual DIY / hardware shops. I had bought it from...

    Dear all, My name is Pasi and I have flyfishing since 1978, when I cought my first salmon (6 lb with a dry fly; Bomper and with 8ft #5 rod, reel was Hardy Marquise 5). What a fun that was, still remember that as it was yesterday. Since then I have keen on flyfishing. Mostly fishing in Norway...

    Catches across Scotland last week were on a par with previous weeks. There is a general feeling that the spring run has not arrived in any great numbers to our shores yet. Hopefully, we will have not too long to wait. In the Scottish Highlands, water levels remained on the low side on many...

    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...

    The scene was set in our minds for the annual Easter foray up to Speyside. Good water levels, warm spring sunshine, light winds and even the odd barbeque. How wrong could we be? ... READ MORE Scotland's first online salmon fishing magazine | SSFS

    NEXT WEEK'S SCOTTISH SALMON FISHING PROSPECTS We have now moved into April and Easter has now come and almost gone. It always seems to be a date on the calendar when you think spring in Scotland has finally sprung. The days are getting longer, and the clocks have gone forward. This, of course...

    The humble spoon is probably one of the most successful lures of all time when it comes to spinning for salmon. 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...

    Looking ahead to next week, the weather is set to become more settled initially, as high pressure dominates our weather. This will lead to overnight frosts and bright, crisp days. However, from midweek onwards it is set to get milder, as weather systems from the Atlantic push in from the west...

    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...

    Looking ahead to next week, the weather is set to be reasonably settled and mild. Monday and Tuesday will be mainly dry across Scotland with temperatures around average for the time of year. Showers could affect western areas on Wednesday and Thursday but these should be quite scattered in...

    The eagerly anticipated Scottish Fly Fair gets underway this upcoming weekend in Stirling. This should be a fantastic event and one to mark in the calendar for any keen fisher. There will be a number of exhibitors at the event on Saturday and Sunday and attendance numbers are set to be high...

    We have now moved into March and entered the meteorological spring. So, you would think with the days getting noticeably longer, it should feel pleasant when the sun comes out and the wind drops. Around us, the landscape should be changing with green buds on the trees and newborn lambs taking...

    THE BEAST FROM THE EAST, A SALMON ANGLERS BEST FRIEND? To say that it has got colder across Scotland over recent days, would be a bit of an understatement. Over the past week, a large area of high pressure has centred itself over Scandinavia and this has led to bitterly cold easterly winds...

    We will be moving into March next week, which heralds the start of the meteorological spring. However, the weather is set to be anything but spring-like. In the past few days, it has been gradually getting colder and it appears that a big freeze being termed the "beast from the east" may be...

    Probably the best way to describe the Scottish weather last week was "bitter". There were frequent snow showers and biting north westerly winds, affecting many parts of the country. The snow fell not just on higher ground but also down to lower levels, causing travel disruption on a number of...
