Salmon Fishing Scotland Catching Spring Salmon Fly Fishing May 2009.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Catching Spring Salmon Fly Fishing May 2009.

I was away today (20/05/2009) for a days salmon fishing on the river Tummel at Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland. I was fishing the Portnacraig beat below the dam.
Not long after i started i landed this lovely fresh 13 pounds salmon fly fishing from the bank.

Scottish Ghillie Geordie Stewart was there as well and quickly came to net the fresh run spring salmon.

Geordie releases the salmon back to the river unharmed. The salmon was barely handed giving it the best possible chance of survival on its upward journey in the river.

Lastly this was another salmon which i caught and landed on my own further down the bank. I took this quick picture before releasing it. The salmon was caught fly fishing from the bank and took a size 11 Carron shrimp fly.
It certainly was a good day for me as salmon have been hard to come by this spring.
