Two Epic Days Salmon Fishing in Scotland with Scotia Fishing

In 2018 I had the pleasure of guiding this great guy Magnus Linden from Sweden to two epic days of Salmon fishing in Scotland

Not only was Magnus a a true gent, he was a very lucky (key ingredient for Salmon fisherman) and skilled Salmon angler.

His wife bought him a gift to celebrate his 50th birthday Salmon fishing in Scotland with Scotia Fishing.

In two days he hooked a total of ten Salmon! Unfortunately he lost five in one day but still an outstanding effort, especially given the tough low water conditions we were faced with on the River Tweed.

On the River Tay Magnus managed to lose five Salmon but still land two including a beautiful silver fish and a proper tartan male in full spawning livery.

Day two, his birthday (of which he shares with my son) we moved to the River Tweed and in low water conditions fished a single hand rod for extra stealth.

First fish fell to a very small Sunray shadow. He also managed a nice Brown Trout just over 5lbs.

Then on the trusty Red Frances Magnus managed to land another two Salmon including the biggest of the trip around 12lbs.

An excellent two days to spend on the river celebrating your birthday and a true example of the quality of Atlantic Salmon fishing available in Scotland on its day!

Fishermans Country

Fishermans Country is the latest addition to Matt Hayes and Mick Brown’s growing list of fishing TV series. This is a short trailer is from one of the days filming and gives us all a little teaser of what to look forward too! I believe it’s being aired on Discovery at some point this year. I have to admit, the cinematography looks really good!

Mick Brown and Matt Hayes are arguably the most popular and influential anglers in the UK.  Matt Hayes in particular for me has been an inspiration from a young age. In my opinion he is the most influential UK fisherman of all time, a legend in my eyes. I can’t imagine the amount of people he has inspired to take up fishing over the years through his various series repeated on Discovery over the years, he even managed to convert me from a golfer!

Enjoy the footage!
