The Atlantic Salmon fishing opportunities in Scotland are truly endless. There are no shortage of prolific salmon rivers for the visiting angler to choose from. As the rivers in Scotland vary so much in size and character there truly is a salmon river to suit all tastes.
Salmon has a fairly good eye sight. They see better different shades of green and blue when they enter the river and later on start seeing shades of orange. This is just due to the fact of their adaptation to their living environment. The blue-greenish shade of oceans apapts their eye sights into that environment.
At the end of the season, the fly tying gear, rods, reels and flies as well will get stuck into the closet. There they will have to wait for the right moment, inspiration and spare time to get the attention they deserve.
Fishing with dry flies is one the coolest ways to fish for Atlantic Salmon. The fishing itself is relatively simple, just cover holding water of the salmon or try and locate one fish and get her to react to the fly.
It is time to fill up all the tying materials after the quiet early winter time. During this season I start to fill empty material stocks and buy missing materials everywhere - from local dealers, web shops and from other flytyers.
