Salmon Fishing Scotland Stanley beats, Tay, Perthshire Report and Prospects for W/C 16th August 2021.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Stanley beats, Tay, Perthshire Report and Prospects for W/C 16th August 2021.

We have waited all summer for a run of salmon but it has finally happened in the last couple of weeks.
In July we were dominated with hot weather and low water with river temperatures exceeding 70F daily.
The weather has broken giving us fresh water and cooling the river encouraging summer salmon to run. 

Initially it was slow with the river collapsing to 2" in Tim Greenfields week however there were still some memories created. This was Tim with a lovely Grilse for the Woodside on the Pitlochrie beat on the fly.

Peter Thomas caught this Grilse in the Long Shot on Benchil on the fly.
More rain fell at the end of that week putting the river up again and encouraging more salmon to run producing a superb week of sport.

Jim Mclanaghan and his cousin enjoyed a superb 3 days landing several salmon up to 15 pounds on fly and spinner. This was Jim with a 15 pounds fish on the fly from the Long Shot at Benchil.
suspense as Stuart plays a lively fish on the fly in the Long Shot eagerly watched by Jim and Millie.

Stuart over the moon with his first Tay salmon and on the fly.
Steve Gordon also had success on the fly from Horsey on Wednesday. 
We them welcomed Geoff Robinsons party back again after 3 days on Cairnton on the Dee with Brian Brogan where they had a great time under his stewardship. I carried on where Brian left off with 10 fish in only 2 days as we had another dirty water on Thursday. 
The pressure was on, Walter had not caught a salmon in his 2 week visit to Scotland! Hey presto he was in at last! My rod and one on my Alistair TTT's!

Success at last and so well deserved, a lovely 12 pounds beauty. There were a few other incidents but they remain private!!!

Andy Waddington with a cracking fish from the long Shot. He also had a nice grilse in Horsey on Pitlochrie on Fly. 

This was Ronnie Henderson landing one of two fish from Horsey on the fly on the Pitlochrie beat on Saturday.
It has been a great week and hopefully will continue for a good few weeks to come.
