The water is up after long awaited rain and rivers are reporting some fine sport again. The Helmsdale Association water is producing the goods as always and another young gun has landed her first fish, at only 11yrs old Isla Macdonald winkled out a lovely grilse and dad Adam teamed up to make it a memorable double by landing a fine 9 pounder in Roaries pool. Prospects are good and it looks like there are good numbers of fish around.

July

Summer is here.

The fishing is not exactly explosive right now as many rivers are running low so fishing early and late is paying off for anglers who are prepared to get out of bed early and fish into the dusk. Stocks seem quite healthy but there are cases of disease cropping up here and there due to the low and warm water. Rain would be good but the forecast is not indicating this anytime soon unfortunately. The Helmsdale Association water is a good bet right now as are many lower beats on UK rivers while fish creep in and settle in the lower reaches.

To help you along we have another stunning fly on offer which is a real summer heavyweight tweaked by Ron, The RS Cascade Firetail with real Junglecock. The deadly set on offer gives you a set of 7 for the price of 6 in 4 sizes right down to size 14s. Only available from Helmsdale Company so grab them when you can right here as they will sell out quickly.

The Helmsdale struggled a little last week, low water, sun and high temps are not great ingredients for salmon fishing. The beats only just got into double figures in total for the week, the association water usually does better in low water and the early morning anglers managed to take advantage landing around 8 fish for the one mile beat. Good numbers of seatrout are also being caught, this is prime time...

We have another superb fly deal for you on our summer Alistairs which are without doubt the best Helmsdale summer flies. Ron has put together a super deadly discounted mix for you as you can see from the pic below. Mainly tubes and a couple of our Alistair Flamethrower doubles in 12s & 14s. To sweeten the deal even more, we are giving away a free Rs Cascade Firetail double with every set. This deal will sell out as most of them do so don't hang around if you want this incredible unique set of flies - note they come bagged or with tube doubles and boxed wuth tube doubles...
