All salmon fishing in Scotland has become primarily 'Catch & Release' in recent years therefore killing salmon is not permitted unless pre-authorised and in compliance with each individual river's management regulations & Scottish law. These Scottish 'Catch & Release' policies are to ensure that good salmon numbers remain in the Scottish rivers which are important for the Scottish economy & good ongoing salmon fishing sport.

It is customary in Scotland to tip the salmon beat ghillie at the end of the fishing day(s) if you've felt you've had a good day regardless of whether or not you have caught salmon. The tip value is purely discretionary however between £10 and £20 per head (per day) is normal.

All fishing clients are requested to contact the salmon beat head ghillie 48 hours before fishing to confirm participation.

All fishing clients are advised to arrive at the fishing hut by 8.30am each day. In the event of a later arrival the salmon beat head ghillie should in all cases be notified by telephone in advance.
