The world-class Caledonia Fly Company has tied this collection of salmon flies for the River Tweed. The selection is designed in conjunction with some of the top Salmon Anglers and Ghillies in Scotland. Spring salmon flies for the river Tweed are based around heavier tube patterns such as Monkeys and Junction Shrimps. These heavier salmon flies are used in conjunction with heavy sink tips to dig down in the water column. With temperatures low and flow rates up, it's imperative to use these salmon flies to get down to where the salmon are lying in the pool.
Salmon in early Spring are far less likely to move up in the water to take your fly. The good news is that Springer's aren't too fussy, and will attack the large bright patterns in this selection provided you can present them at the right depth. If you are travelling up to the Tweed for spring Salmon and the water is usually low, and the weather warm for the time of year, make sure you also pack some Summer Salmon flies for the Tweed too, so you have all your bases covered.
