dry fly for salmon



well the water was still very low and the trout shy so i decided that i would have a go at the one thing that has raised an eyebrow in me over the past few years and that's dry fly for salmon using flies like the muddler or the bomber skated across the surface or dead drifted to rising grilse but their were no fish to be seen so that was making things difficult right away as for dead drifting you really need to be able to see the fish ,so i started of with the skating method and spent about an hour doing this but to no avail but just maybe when the salmon are in ,in better numbers and the water is a bit higher i may just get my way and land a salmon on the dry fly which i just think would be amazing to experience and as if by magic the heavens open and the rain pours down bringing the much needed water to the kelvin i just hope it was enough to make the real difference that will bring salmon and sea trout running into the river as this can be the best time of the year fishing the kelvin as long as their is enough water with fantastic trout fishing to be had on most stretches so until i get a good look at the river for myself which will be tomorrow morning i wont know what kind of fishing ill be doing over the next few days ,but if the river is high enough but not overflowing ill have a go with the worm for salmon and maybe a wee go with the bomber again....
