Scottish Salmon & Pike
It’s mid August and Paul visits the beautiful tree lined River Ness in Invernesshire, to fly fish for Atlantic salmon. With bright sunshine and high water river conditions fly fishing is far from simple and nothing is caught. So, as evening approaches, it’s on with the spinning tackle, which to Paul’s delight accounts for a handsome early autumn salmon. In part 2 it’s something completely different as Paul heads even further north to Loch Garve in Wester Ross to fish for pike with Dominic Moore, a pike fanatic form Essex. Dominic, who now lives in Scotland, is convinced the new British record pike will come from these northern lochs and he has all the equipment needed to catch the big one, including high tech bait launchers, hand held digital depth sounders and mercury switch bite alarms!
