TOP 5 TIPS
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.
