If you enjoy catching trout, but you’re coming in the winter then grayling are the answer! The wild trout fishing season in Scotland ends on the 6th of October. You can catch trout after that, but only stocked ones.
If you’d like to fish a river after this time then why not have a go for our wonderful grayling.
The current UK record for grayling sits at 4lb 4oz. A size which could well be topped on a Fishinguide grayling trip. These beautiful creatures are best fished for from October to March. That’s when they’re in peak condition and will come to nymphs, spiders or occasionally dry flies. We love grayling fishing and would delight in sharing our passion for these fantastic and often underrated fish with you.
Grayling, especially in the colder months, live in shoals. That’s where your guides expertise comes in. We know the spots where the grayling like to spend time. Once you find them it’s not uncommon to loose count of the beautiful hard fighting grayling you catch.
