One day for 2 rods fishing for salmon in Argyll or Perthshire. We have access to a river that is available for Fishinguide guests only, as well as the option of other rivers in both areas. Depending on when you are able to fish we will choose the best venue for you. The small rivers of Argyll make covering fish with the fly, and as a result catching them, a good deal easier than on big rivers. This is the place to get your first salmon, even if you’ve struggled to catch salmon before. Your eyes will be opened! Guided by SGAIC casting instructor and pro-guide. Includes transport from Taynuilt or Aberfeldy, all equipment and photos. May-Oct 2020.

To be taken by end of July 2020 by arrangement.
