Salmon Fishing Scotland Tay, Perthshire, Scotland Salmon Fishing Opening Day 2014.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Tay, Perthshire, Scotland Salmon Fishing Opening Day 2014.

The 2014 salmon fishing opening day at last arrived today but with fairly inclement weather.

Despite all the rain and rising temperatures anglers were out in force throughout the river system experiencing the first casts of 2014.

Scotland's first minister, Alex Salmond opened the Tay with the aid of 7 year old Jimmy Stewart and his proud grandfather, Willie Townsley.

Young Jimmy Stewart performed the first symbolic cast watched by a large crown at Dunkeld.

It was then down to business throughout the river under grey skies and heavy rain at times but despite this catches were achieved on most parts of the river. There seemed to be a lot of Kelts landed which was heartening meaning spawning had been successful with the absent of unspawned fish by and large.

Boats went out with anticipation.

Calum McRoberts with a cracking 17 pounds fresh spring salmon caught at the Deans Burn at Newtyle, Dunkeld.

A superb 15 pounds sea liced salmon caught by John Lessels at Taymount from the Ministers Stone on a silver Toby.

Freddie Richardson holds a 12 pounds spring salmon caught on a Toby from Pitlochrie pool at Stanley. He was part of the Farlows party from London.

Despite the adverse conditions today the Tay has got off to a good start, let us hope this continues and we can get another memorable spring like last year.
