Our Story


The SSFS concept has been devised by husband and wife team Sandy and Samantha Datta. Together, we have over 33 years salmon fishing experience and have fished all over the UK and Ireland.

Soon after we first met, we regularly started going salmon fishing together. Nowadays, living in Scotland and being in close proximity to the “big four” salmon rivers, we fish most weeks. We therefore thought that it may be useful for our fellow salmon anglers to get an insight into our salmon fishing world and share in our salmon fishing experiences. It soon became apparent that the best way to do this was by launching Scotland’s only dedicated online salmon fishing magazine. We hoped that this would also inspire new faces into trying salmon fishing, so they could experience the same enjoyment we have both had and continue to have from this wonderful sport.

Originally, SSFS was designed exclusively as a dedicated online Scottish salmon fishing magazine. However, the magazine’s popularity grew rapidly and we now enjoy a worldwide following in over 61 countries. Over time, our readers in the UK and abroad have regularly asked whether we can design salmon fishing holidays in Scotland for them, so they can experience what we do on almost a weekly basis. With our extensive knowledge and key salmon fishing contacts, we quickly developed a number of excellent partners in the salmon fishing and hospitality industry. In addition to our online magazine, we are now able to offer bespoke tailor made Scottish salmon fishing holidays. SSFS has become the home of the “Ultimate Scottish Salmon Fishing Experience”.

So now you can wet your appetite by browsing through our informative and entertaining magazine features, which showcase some of the stunning salmon fishing opportunities Scotland has to offer. You can then design your very own Ultimate Scottish Salmon Fishing Experience, with SSFS and get ready to commence battle with the king of fish, the wild Scottish salmon!

Our Team


We at SSFS have been fortunate enough to gather a wealth of experience and diversity when it comes to our international world-class team. Our team has both local Scottish and Scandinavian guides as well as a female guide. A number of our guides are part of the LTS Across Team Sweden.

The Scandinavian style of salmon fishing is becoming ever more popular in Scotland and our international guides can give you instruction and tips on how to fish for Atlantic salmon, the modern Scandinavian way.

Our team will ensure that you get the best out of your fishing break, whatever you need, be it equipment hire, flies or even some guidance on your technique. We are here to make your experience unforgettable. Take some time below to learn more about our world-class team.
