Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing at Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland 2009.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing at Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland 2009.


The tail of Horsey pool on the Pitlochrie beat at Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland at last light on a cold spring day.


Mark Ogilvey into a Spring salmon on the Benchil beat of the lower Tay below Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland in the boat.


The fresh spring salmon was successfully landed on a Rapala then carefully returned to the river.

Conditions for this coming week could not be better for the famous Stanley beats with cold weather and low river temperatures. On Friday and Saturday the water temperature was 35 degrees Fahrenheit of 1.5 degrees Celsius which should slow any salmon down when entering the river Tay. Not only that, with falling river heights the possibility of catching on the fly increases dramatically. A wet 2 or an intermediate with a fast sinking leader should be the correct tactics with a good sized fly.

I thought TSFB recommendations were to only use one hook on a rapala lure?
