Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing on the Tummel April 2009.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing on the Tummel April 2009.

Outstanding April day on the Tummel at Pitlochry Dam.

Today was a fantastic day on the Tummel on the Pitlochry Angling club stretch at Pitlochry Dam in Perthshire, Scotland for Steve McGrandles and Jimmy Forbes from Denny. They caught 4 lovely fresh Spring salmon spinning and fly fishing from the bank and 3 of the salmon were 20 pounds and over.

Firstly Stevie McGrandles caught this 20 pounds spring salmon fly fishing from the town bank first thing in the morning. The salmon was carefully returned to the river.

Jimmy Forbes then caught a 24 pounds prize spring salmon spinning a devon from the bank on the town side of the river. After a lengthy struggle the fish was landed and returned to the river. Stevie and Jim changed banks at lunch time and it was not long until Jim hooked and landed this prize 25 pounds springer from the Theatre bank again on a devon. After the fish was landed it was carefully returned.

A closer look at this multi sea winter spring salmon.

Not to be out done Stevie finished the day with a lovely 9 pounds sea liced spring salmon fly fishing from the Green bank.
A truly memorable day.
