Salmon Fishing in Scotland

The Atlantic Salmon is one of the world’s most prized fighting fish; the combination of its power, speed and weight on suitable tackle can provide one of angling’s most exhilarating experiences.

Scotland provides many forms of salmon angling opportunities, from small spate burns to large fast-flowing rivers with the opportunity to bait fish, spin or fly fish (care should be taken to check with rules and regulations on each river beat).
