The Tay in Perthshire, Scotland is having another monumental spring salmon fishing week. The catches are now going to push over 200 registered fish for the week which is superb but the icing on the cake is the steady emergence of much larger multi sea winter spring salmon running the mighty river. 2 Leviathans have been caught this week with the promise of more to come! These fish are priceless for our river and were both carefully returned to maintain our valuable gene pool. Thank you to all anglers who have this season so far returned their spring salmon to maintain our sport for the future, it is vitally important and is a great contribution by individuals who care for their sport and the river. Well done!
This was ghillie Tony Black about to return the massive 36 pounds beauty from the Murthly 2 beat earlier in the week. The girth on these fish is amazing and has always been a big characteristic of true Tay salmon. This was more than likely a 4 sea winter salmon. Well done Tony.
