Fishing Gifts Scotland
By Jock Monteith 23rd December 2021
With Christmas fast approaching so does the dilemma of what to buy a loved one from the vast array of gifts on offer. Consider a quality introduction to the exciting world of Scottish salmon fishing which could inspire the uptake of this amazingly 'natural' recreational activity that could easily last a lifetime.
Scottish Salmon Rivers
Our renowned guided salmon river gift vouchers are available on the four major Scottish salmon rivers Tay, Dee, Spey & Tweed which are all open for fishing by early February right through to at least the end of September. The logistical positioning of these rivers means there's at least one salmon river reasonably close depending on your Scottish home location. This guided salmon fishing experience is designed for both newcomers to the sport and for existing salmon fishers who could benefit from some professional fine tuning to increase their tactical understanding and success rate.
Which Salmon River To Book
The River Tay due to its central Scotland locational position is a very popular choice of venue as the Tay is within easy motorway commuting distance from the major hubs of Glasgow & Edinburgh. The Tay is also fortunate to have such a vast loch fed headwater system which always provides good water conditions. The rivers Dee, Spey & Tweed logistically cover other areas of Scotland and although shallower in nature they too are famous Scottish salmon rivers.
Professional Scottish Salmon Guides
All of our professional salmon guides are of 'time served' status and not just someone who has been brought in for the day who's not or has never been a professional Scottish ghillie. This is very important as often guides are not well enough skilled to give a guest a thorough salmon fishing education or the necessary tactical fine tuning which is vital for success. All of our professional staff are either of current 'full time' professional status or have been of professional status for at least 5 years.
Learning To Salmon Fish
All of the important basic skills of how to be effective on the riverbank are taught to our guests. These skills include how to use a 15ft double handed salmon fly rod, wade correctly through a salmon pool and how to react to the take from a salmon when it happens. Other important salmon fishing skills that are taught to our guests are how to correctly 'approach' a salmon pool and how to 'read' the river to identify exactly where salmon are likely to be located which are other vital skills for success in this amazing pursuit.
