The Helmsdale produced around 30 fish last week in low conditions which is probably par for the course at this time of the year. The grilse are filtering in and the run should build over July.

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.
