Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 Lis­ten to the gil­lies – their un­der­stand­ing of the beat is un­matched.

2 Don’t stretch your­self with the fly rod – try­ing to cast be­yond a com­fort­able range will only lead to poor fish­ing.

3 Fish me­thod­i­cally – this will en­sure you cover ev­ery inch of wa­ter well.

4 The fly should land on a fully ex­tended line so it be­gins to fish im­me­di­ately – a crum­pled heap and half your cast will be a waste.

5 Which­ever tech­nique you use, un­der­stand how the salmon be­haves. This will vary de­pend­ing on the time of the year.

Gil­lie Gor­don on hand to help.
