The Helmsdale struggled with low water again last week with around 30 fish off all told. The Association water which has been the best beat recently has slowed down markedly, a big spate is now required to refresh and get things going again.

On the fly scene we have had one of our best online seasons even with Covid killing off most of the spring fishing. We had a huge spike in activity when anglers were permitted to travel and fish again and have been very busy since. Most of our success is due to the Helmsdale Co brand offering RS design flies which cannot be purchased anywhere else online thanks to Rons insatiable creativity. Below you will see some of his incredible work with just the legendary Willie Gunn fly, the best known atlantic salmon fly in the world. To say he has taken the pattern to another level would be an monumental understatement. Just check out the flies and tubes set below, most of which are RS design flies.

We are calling this stunning selection "50 Shades of Willie Gunn" and you will get a Willie Gunn collection to absolutely die for with no 2 flies the same size. The price is also stunning for such a unique set of flies, 50 flies for £150, we also do this set boxed and/or with tube doubles. Keep this in mind too for Christmas if you want to totally spoil any salmon angler, especially a Willie Gunn lover, you will simply take their breath away!
