The Helmsdale salmon fishery board is pleased to announce the Open Days for 2013 will start on Friday January 11th and finish on Tuesday January 15th. As usual, permits can be acquired, without charge, from either the Helmsdale tackle shop at: email@example.com and on 01431 821272, or from Strathullie Craft on: firstname.lastname@example.org and on 01431 821402.
Anglers may fish anywhere on the river. They are reminded that some kelts are well-mended at this time and should be handled with care. Releasing fish is a general principle of the Board’s conservation policy, and this is encouraged for these rare early springers. Fishing is with fly only.
