This thread has been pulled in all directions and could cause all sorts of problems.
HF there have been some great points covered especially by Herbie...more in line with the way i was thinking....i don't feel the need to re post them.
There are plenty of small still water fisheries to practice the sport before falling in at the deep end.
So i'll bow out of this thread now and say no more and keep my thoughts to myself in the future....i had already stated it was only my opinion...maybe forums are not the way to express opinions without causing hurt and anger amongst the pc brigade........ ;D...but f@## it..i'd say the same to you if i met - face to face.
Salmon fishing success is tied to being at the right place at the right time, the deeper your wallet the more chance you have of finding yourself in that situation. It must be frustrating for ghillies to have Rods, who are unable to cast or fish properly, on at prime time in good conditions and know that the beats potential will not be attained. As long as money speaks that will be the situation on bookable water.
O give me Grace to catch a fish, so big that even I, when telling of it afterwards shall never need to lie.
I dearly hope that you are all joking with the theme of this thread. Fishing for any species should be as inclusive and welcoming to all regardless of age, sex, ability to pay, cast tie flies etc....etc....etc.... I hope that you will all agree that here are more than enough pompous asses in this world without trying to add to them. If you are on a piece of water on which there is somebody who has some difficulties surely it would be 'right thing to do' to offer them assistance. This has nothing to do with political correctness it has to do with common bloody decency.

Completely agree SR although I think somewhere down the line the question being posed was centered around something like "Is it better to come into Salmon fishing having done your 'time' on smaller stuff" ? I don't think for a minute that anyone here would do anything other than embrace, help and encourage those new to the sport - "pompous asses" excepted of course.
Young lad catching salmon on the fly. What a great apprenticeship. No need to fish for trout for 2 years. Just start on the salmon and stay there (no offence to the trout fishers because that obviously takes a good deal of skill) This is great to see ;D ;D
IBM those are real fish. Personaly i think most people start on trout and go to salmon fishing. As i get older i find that i am enjoying my trout fishing more as you know they are there. The salmon fishing is getting to much of a gamble nowadays. The river goes up and down so quickly that it is getting to the hour to be there instead of the day. I allso think there is a lot more skill in trout fishing and i enjoy giving fish to friends. Bob
