First fish captor Andy Sutherland had landed a prestigious double on the Helmsdale by catching the first fish on the Association water this week. A Dee Monkey bottle tube did the trick in the Flat pool, the fish was sea-liced at 8lbs and was returned. Its very encouraging to see fish running as early as this and you can fish the Association water daily for only £25 per day or half price if you are on a pension or under 16, great value and a realistic chance of catching one of our prized spring salmon....
There is still a week available on the Suisgill rods from Feb 2nd withRead more

Some Helmsdale fishing if anyone interested...the springers are in!
Brora angler Duncan Stewart grassed a cracking 14 pounder and the 3rd Opening week fish today. Duncan was fishing the Viaduct pool beat 1 when the fish struck his 1.5" RS Green Highlander copper tube. The sea-liced fish was safely returned. The river is running very nicely right now at 1ft 6 and perfect for most of the big lower Helmsdale spring pools. There are 2 days left to fish on the Opening week so if you have not had a cast yet, now is your chance, prospects are good and the springers are obviously running!

Lucky fish hit by seals but managed to escape to fight another day.
Massive thanks to the Helmsdale River Board for the unique free fishing event, Gordon Simm & Loop Tackle, Clynelish Whisky, Helmsdale Co staff and all the anglers (151) who made Opening day on the Helmsdale a big success. Well done to Ruth Dudgeon for opening the river in fine style. Congratulations once again to Andy Sutherland for catching the first salmon in the UK and Ronnie Dempster who caught the second.
The river is looking very good and Opening day will be frost free! the ceremony begins at 9.30am and you need to sign in at the tackle shop for your fishing permit. We have 50% off all clothing and flies so a great chance to grab a bargain. Ruth Dudgeon will have the opening cast around 10am - hope to see you all there!
