Salmon Fishing Introductions
By Jock Monteith 13th December 2021
There's nothing that I've ever witnessed that even comes close to the natural pleasure and visual magnificence of a day beside one of Scotland's beautiful salmon rivers. Some may think that catching a salmon is all that it's about but they are wrong or haven't developed that true appreciation of the sport that will more than likely keep them in it for life.
The Natural World Of Salmon Fishing
If you're not into the natural world and prefer the apparent faster moving sports like tennis or football that is fine however nothing will get your heart racing anywhere near as much as a solid connection with a fighting fit wild Atlantic salmon on a fly rod. Nor will other pursuits have a calming influence on you the way the ever changing hypnotic movement a salmon river will have.
Salmon Fishing Introductions
Like anything in life it starts with first impressions and how you are introduced to the sport and by whom. There are many real salmon men in Scotland who are absolute top drawer when it comes to salmon fishing knowledge and hosting clients on the rivers. This unique blend more often than not doesn't go hand in hand with a high commercial profile. This calibre of true professional is however the one you should seek for your introduction to this sport.
Scotland's Best Professional Salmon Men
Over my career in salmon fishing I've been fortunate to develop great relationships with some of Scotland's very finest professional ghillies who I work with closely these days since coming away from river life to focus on the marketing side of Scottish salmon fishing. I couldn't care a jot about money as it is indeed the true 'route of all evil' however I do care with an unrivalled passion about our pursuit and making sure it is presented properly with client's needs qualified correctly which is very important yet still relatively rare in this industry.
Treasuring The Scottish Salmon Rivers
Thank God for Scotland's fine salmon rivers that have been taken for granted by thousands of us throughout our lives. It's our duty to make sure every moment spent thinking of or being beside a Scottish salmon river is a fine moment indeed. One of the most worthwhile achievements in life is acquiring 'peace of mind' and I can assure you that a Scottish salmon river will assist with this objective and especially if you're guided or advised by one of Scotland's sharpest and most knowledgeable salmon fishing professionals.
Book A Salmon Fishing Professional
