The River Spey is simply over a hundred miles long as well as runs north eastern from Loch Spey past Newtonmore, Aviemore, Grantown on Spey and also Aberlour joining the sea in the Moray Firth at Spey Bay simply north of Fochabers. Not only is the Spey well-known for salmon angling as well as the Spey Cast but the waters of Speyside are relied on to create even more whisky than any other area in Scotland.
The spring salmon run starts around mid March till completion of May and also salmon can be discovered throughout the Tay system right through the summertime. September declares the fall salmon run which creates the biggest number of salmon at any moment during the period. The Tay produced the largest ever before pole caught, salmon in Britain which was captured by Miss Georgina Ballantine in 1922, weighing 64lbs, as well as which still remains the British Record. There is now solid evidence to recommend that the salmon are investing a longer time mixed-up and growing substantially larger just before getting in the river system which has actually had the result of producing many salmon in excess of 30lbs as well as some over of 40lbs. Methods of angling can be fly angling, spin angling as well as harling (trolling) where there are boats offered. The season on the Tay is from the 15th of January until the 15th of October although some beats have actually now prolonged this to the 31st of October albeit catch and also release simply.
