The fishing in Scotland is showing great promise with some good catches being reported all over the country, we know this from receiving excellent feedback from anglers using our flies. The recent dry spell with bright conditions has slowed things down a little but some lovely salmon are still being caught. A nice example was William Jappy landing a sparkling 19 pounder on the Helmsdale Association water, this beat favours lower water and should fish well as it approaches peak season for salmon and seatrout fishing.

We have had great success this season offering deadly salmon selections to suit all conditions with our latest being a tactical summer selection in our previous fishing report. We now have another massively popular fly in various options available as a set. The Rs Willie Gunn TD is one of our most popular and successful tubes based on the legendary Willie Gun colours - grab a set, you will not...

Good week

River levels were dropping away last week on the Helmsdale but fish were obviously running. Local experts Andy Sutherland, Corrie Cormack and Hugo Ross all took full advantage bagging 3 or 4 each from all over the river. The total for the week was estimated at over 20 so things are hotting up. Adam Macdonald also got in on the act with a few casts here and there and caught something you don't often see mid April - not well mended, the colour says it all but it was amusing non the less, and a salmon (pic below)

With travel restrictions being eased last Friday there has been an inevitable spike in fishing bookings and our website has exploded with flies and accessory orders. Below is our new deadly set of Firetail Cascades and Willie Gunns which were a best seller for us last season and you can buy...

A better week

The Helmsdale started to fish better after a big flood midweek freshened things up, the springers were obviously waiting. A dozen fish were reported by midday Saturday after some decent fishing on beats 5 & 6 and team Grant once again have made all the headlines, this time it was Glencoast tackle shop owner Yvonne who landed her first salmon on beat 5, a sea-liced 10 pounder.

We are now taking international orders as anglers set their sights on hopefully fishing overseas. The whole salmon scene is cranking up as restrictions look like easing, lets hope things open up properly soon after April 26th in Scotland at least.
