Hi Capt Jeff, thank for responding to enquiry,The season here in Scotland has only just started but salmon fishing is by definition,"financal mental masocisum" it costs the earth peak season,£1000/per day at the Junction Pool, Kelso,and if the river is in flood no money back!!I prefer to fish saltwater having been in Caribean several times I cannot keep away.My trip in the back end is to try to establish the best area to retire with best fishing ,I would be happy to look at the possibility of investment in a fishing operation!
I am a workaholic is I know the best th ing in retirement is\to link the two together and enjoy life! I have a grat number of contacts in the fishingworld this side of the Atlantic all wanting to saltwater fly but are put off by the high cost,but there areways round that with alittle thought to make it more amenable.Will get back to you on email. Tight Lines, Eric Ball
