WSF-AboutA New FREE Web Service is Launched for Salmon Anglers

We’ve all been there – you get to the water’s edge and just tie on the same fly which worked the last time you were out – hoping that the fish will still be interested. Well, how about using a little bit of modern technology to give you a helping hand in deciding which fly to use?

With that exact scenario in mind, Salmon Flies UK have been working on a project for the last 8 months and after extensive user testing, it’s finally ready to release. It’s a website (accessible on any device) which shows you which flies to use on which rivers based on the date and river levels. It retrieves all of these details automatically, and then references them against a comprehensive database and live feeds behind the scenes, to display:

• Images of the suggested flies to use for the river selected
• For each fly it gives you a short description and also provides information on hook sizes
and weights.
• Each of the flies displayed are clickable, where it takes you to larger images and more
information on each fly.
• You even get the option to have the results emailed to you

The website is being launched to coincide with the opening of the salmon rivers throughout Scotland. The website currently covers the most popular salmon rivers in Scotland & England (with more rivers – and countries – being added daily), and best of all, it’s free of charge (with no annoying adverts)!

To use the site:
Using your phone, tablet or computer, just access this will take you to the website:
