Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing on the Tay 2010.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Spring Salmon Fishing on the Tay 2010.

The Benchil beat on the lower Tay just below Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland on a cold but bright day in February 2010.

A typical spring fly which you need to fish slow and deep in the river. Sinking lines or very fast tips are required to take your flies down close to a possible taking spring salmon if you are fly fishing. Another consideration is to reduce your casting angle to slow the fly down through the lies giving the salmon plenty time to see the fly and take it. Skagit lines are perfect along with shooting heads to make life easier for casting and enable you to present your fly effectively to increase the chance of a Springer.

Another cold day on the Tay in Perthshire, Scotland. Fresh snow on the ground, river temperature of 36F or 2C, not for the faint hearted!
