Fly Fishing in Scotland. The River Tay is the largest Scottish Salmon River – the home of salmon. The River Tay is known as one of the big four of salmon fishing rivers in Scotland and is internationally renowned as one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the UK. There are over forty different salmon fishing beats on the River Tay. Trout fishing in the Upper Tay is excellent at times. The Tay system also has big grayling. The salmon fishing season on the River Tay and the Tay tributaries starts on the 15th of January and ends on the 15th of October although the season could be extended on some Lower beats until the 31st of October albeit catch and release only.

We provide salmon fishing trips and salmon fishing holidays on one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in Scotland, the Tay. Unlike many professional salmon fishing guides we are not tied to an individual beat or fishery and all of our salmon fishing trips or Spey Casting lessons take place on the top ten most productive salmon fishing beats of The Tay, providing us and our clients with the finest salmon fishing the River Tay has to offer.

This is an excellent opportunity for the seasoned salmon angler to experience a varied and unique salmon fishing trip. For anyone new to salmon fishing or Spey casting this is a great introduction to the world of Scottish salmon fishing. This style of casting with a double handed salmon fishing rod was called Speycasting, as it is thought to have been developed on the River Spey in Scotland. We will provide you with Speycasting lessons and an in depth course on salmon fishing. We also provide all of the fishing tackle required, safety vests and waders. We cater for individuals or groups. B&B accommodation and airport transfers can also be arranged.

We believe in teaching you the correct techniques from the very start, and how to avoid picking up any bad casting habits which could take you years to rectify in the future. We offer a one day introductory Spey casting course which will concentrate mainly on teaching you how to Speycast correctly, and a more in depth salmon fishing course over a few days, which will include how to read the river and spot the pools; rod, reel and fly selection; and how to hook, play and successfully land a salmon.  

Our team are well versed in putting together a salmon fishing trip to suit your personal requirements, level of experience and style of fishing. We will advise you on the best line and flies to match the beat and conditions of the day, show you the holding pools and how to fish them and will be on hand at all times to provide as much or as little advice as you might need, and of course help net, land and photograph any fish you catch.
