…Scotland’s rivers, lochs,  landscape and heritage on a Fishinguide adventure

Experience the excitement ...

… of catching your first fish on the fly, stalking wild brown trout on a highland river, or hooking your first Atlantic salmon

Why choose Fishinguide?   We are…

Inspirational…

Fishing in Scotland’s wild places is our passion, and we want to share that passion with you.

We offer fishing trips to suit anglers of all abilities,  venues in beautiful locations, and a range of fish species that keep us constantly spellbound.

Whether you’re a lifelong angler looking for your first Atlantic salmon, or a complete beginner wanting to learn how to cast and catch, we have the perfect fishing trip for you.

Professional…

As well as having a lifetime’s experience of fishing in Scotland, our guides are qualified fly casting instructors.

Making sure you have great day on the water is our prime concern, so all our guides are knowledgeable, professional and excellent company.

Our guides are trained in first aid and safeguarding, are CRB-vetted by Disclosure Scotland, and carry professional indemnity insurance.

Sustainable…

It’s our sincere hope that Scotland’s rivers and lochs have more fish and healthier ecosystems as a result of Fishinguide’s efforts.

We practice 100% catch-and-release for wild fish, and are advocates for the KeepFishWet campaign.

Environmental charity donations and volunteering – including work in river restoration, scale sampling for biological data, and campaigning against the harmful aspects of aquaculture –are part of how we give back.

Absolutely fantastic few days with these guys. Duncan knows his salmon fishing but also his knowledge of the environment and the ecosystem was broad and very impressive.

I caught a 24lbs and 7lbs salmon. On one day I had a salmon, sea trout and brown trout, the treble !

Jock and Duncan provide a great fishing experience!!! I just returned from a short trip to Edinburgh Scotland and can report that myself and two sons (32 & 22 yrs) had a great time fishing with Jock. He was absolutely a one-of-kind instructor for novice fly fishermen and had us up and running in no time. The venue was gorgeous…the heather was just starting to sprout, geese on the loch and nice sized rainbow trout. A great experience for all and certainly made our trip that much more memorable. Thanks guys…we’ll be back

My partner and I did the blast and cast trip for her birthday and it was easily one of the best day trips we’ve together. The shooting was great, and the instructor was very helpful. Richard was an outstanding and highly knowledgeable guide, who really went out of his way to make the day special – from recommending the best places to get food, to even giving my partner a birthday present. The scenery was stunning throughout, and had a genuine sense of being in the wild. We will definitely be going again, and have already recommended it to friends and family!

Our family had a wonderful time fishing with Duncan and Tom – this was one of the highlights of our trip. Duncan went above and beyond to maximize our chance of catching salmon while also having a great time. As our group had varying skill levels, we appreciated the patient instruction for the beginners in our group. We certainly saw a lot of salmon, and ended the day as better anglers.

The day was inspiring. A guide who was hugely experienced, insightful, patient and engaging. Add to that the opportunity to fish a truly wonderful river in an environment of outstanding beauty. The best bit – hooking my first salmon. It leapt, ran and put up the most exhilarating struggle, which in the end it won. Lessons learned – listen more closely to Duncan next time.

Went on a trip with Neil in late September 2019 near Pitlochry. Asked to see some native brown trout in their natural habitat, and Neil delivered. Took me to some very scenic spots on a section of the Upper Tummel that we had to ourselves all day, and got a handful of colourful and feisty browns to the net … Neil is a wonderful guide — down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and great to have a conversation with.

We were in Scotland for a family wedding and took a day to spend fishing. Our guide Neil was an absolute pleasure to work with and we had an absolutely fantastic day on the river. We felt completely at ease and well taken care of. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and dropped off in the evening. Our instruction was helpful and concise. I couldn’t have asked for a better guiding experience.

Duncan’s knowledge of Salmon and Sea Trout fishing was instantly apparent and we improved our casting and fishing techniques. On top of this he spoke about ecology and the environment showing us the evidence of beavers on the Tay, Red and Roe Deer. We saw Red Squirrels and numerous interesting birds species in spectacular scenery. Had we booked our own fishing we would not have fished seven different rivers or had such a brilliant experience.

We had a fantastic day salmon fishing, both of us landing fish, myself on my first salmon which has been a bucket list item for quite some time, Neil was our guide and from start to finish he provided great company, conversation and guiding. One of the best days I’ve shared with my old man and I’m glad it was while being guided by fishinguide.

I arranged a trip through Duncan Pepper for a pike fishing trip, the weather prevented us from fly fishing, but JJ and Hugh had all the alternate equipment for spin fishing and took us out in boats instead. We ended up having a fantastic time! Hugh and JJ were exceptional guides, prepared lunch for us in-between the morning and afternoon sessions, and were very fun to spend the day with! In the end we caught 7 pike between us and spent an amazing day on a loch and none of us wanted it to end. In the future I would book more than one day. Highly recommend …
