They will learn how to cast easily and efficiently and how to assess conditions to employ the most likely tactics for success with salmon fishing. The two day of salmon fly fishing school will commence on the evening of the first day, at The Kenmore Hotel, Kenmore, and continue through Saturday and Sunday. Course participants can practice their new found skills on the hotel's beat of the R Tay and convert the school into a fishing break.
