Hopes are high as this year’s Salmon season is under way, with the first spring fish being landed from the river Helmsdale and Tay. All time catch records were broken last year for many fisheries, including our Local River Forth of which enjoyed a 50% increase in salmon landed. Expectations will be high to what the 2011 fishing season will bring.
Today’s salmon anglers have a great selection of tackle to choose from. Angling Centre Stirling can offer helpful-knowledgeable advice on fly fishing and spinning alike. Whether it be the latest fly rods from Mackenzie DTX range, Simms technical clothing, fly lines from Rio and Airflo or Daiwa spinning rods and Shimano reels.
Fly line choice can be the most important aspect to our approach, tactics can change on a daily bases, according to river conditions with the luckiest fly being the deciding factor. A revolution in rod blank material has given birth to the Hardy Sintrix rods which can give, up to 60% more strength, whilst reducing weight. Anglers are welcome to try these fantastic rods as we have demonstration models available at our store.
Tightlines and the very best of luck
