Salmon Fishing Trip On The River Tay With Tay Salmon Fly Part 1

This week we have been out chasing the River Tay salmon with our deadly flies. We had booked on the Murthly 1 Beat with Ghillie Donald Tritton. After the morning meet and greets we were allocated our pools for the morning. I made my way to the "well" with my trusty MacKenzie DTX and my favourite summer fly the Executioner. On my 5th cast I hooked a spirited fish which was swiftly landed and it was a coloured hen salmon of around 7lbs.
After quickly releasing  the salmon I went back into the pool and shortly afterwards I was in to another salmon this one was slightly bigger at around 9lbs and was swiftly returned.
The rest of the morning failed to produce any further action to we returned to the hut for lunch. During lunch the sun came out and was rather bright so I decided not to fish the afternoon session and save the efforts for the evening..........
