Grayling package

delimiter image

If you enjoy​ ​catching trout, but you’re coming to Scotland 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 in winter, then why not have a go for our wonderful
grayling. The current UK record for grayling sits at 4lb 8oz (set in 2019). 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 to share our passion for these fantastic and
often underrated fish. ​

​Grayling, especially in the colder months, live in shoals. That’s where your
guide’s expertise comes in. We know the spots where the grayling like to spend
time. Once you find them it’s not uncommon to lose count of the beautiful hard-
fighting grayling you catch.​
