'Fish Of The Month' Prize

Throughout each month of the Scottish salmon fishing season one bottle of quality malt whisky will be presented to a salmon fishing client of this booking platform who provides the best photograph of a specimen salmon that they caught on any of this website's participating salmon beats.

This monthly prize may not necessarily be won for the heaviest salmon landed and could be awarded for the the best salmon photograph provided.

The qualifying styles of acceptable salmon capture photographs that could win you this fine quality malt whisky prize are as detailed below.

Tight Lines.

If photographing a salmon while fishing alone make sure the fish is lying flat in the bag of the landing net with the salmon perfectly in frame on or close to the water line. Take a few shots to make sure you get a good one.

If you're fishing with a colleague briefly lift the salmon to the water line in the landing net with the salmon's flanks as square to the camera as possible and have your colleague take a few shots. Sometimes tilting the belly of the fish up slightly by liftting the net's mesh will capture the beauty of the salmon's flanks more effectively.
