The Scottish Salmon Fishing Podcast

The Scottish Salmon Fishing Podcast is Scotland’s first and only podcast dedicated to salmon fishing in Scotland. The podcast is in association with Salmon Fishing holidays Scotland.

This podcast is presented by Sandy Datta (Director of Scottish Salmon Fishing Surgery www.scottishsalmonfishingsurgery.com & Salmon Fishing Holidays Scotland) and Andrew Gunn (Head Ghillie on the Newtyle Beat of the River Tay). Together Sandy and Andy have over 60 years of salmon fishing experience in Scotland and abroad. The aim of the podcast is to keep listeners up to date with the latest news from the Scottish salmon fishing scene and have interesting, controversial and lively debates on various issues around the sport. As well as this, there will be helpful hints and tips for listeners and interviews with well-known guests on the show from the salmon fishing world. Listeners will also have the chance to ask questions via the Scottish Salmon Fishing Podcast Facebook Page. Hopefully, the podcast will encourage new faces on to the riverbank as well as igniting passionate debate from listeners already enjoying our wonderful sport.
