Trout package

delimiter image

The wonderful trout. Trout fishing in Scotland comes in many, many forms.
You can cast an upstream dry to a trout in a highland river, or nymph a fast run
where a tributary meets a main stem. Perhaps hiking in to fish a remote lochan
is more your style, or fishing the estuary for sea-run brown trout (sea trout).
Amongst Scots the most popular method of all is to fish ‘loch style’ with
traditional Scottish wet flies while drifting on a boat in a loch – give it a try, it’s
a great day out.

Our commitment is to make your day as good as it can be. With attention
to detail we will make sure you get the best possible fishing experience. We will
take you to the best venues to make your catch and set you up with top quality
equipment. There will be attentive guidance from a qualified casting coach and
game angling guide – your Fishinguide!

Locations

Argyll

Argyll has it all. The very biggest trout in the UK live in Argyll (current record 31lb 10oz) and one of our guides is considered the UKs best anglers of these enormous fish. There are hundreds of lochs containing beautiful highland trout, rivers where they can be taken using spiders, nymphing or dry fly fishing and also estuaries and coastline where the majestic sea trout can be caught.
Image

Perthshire

The real gem of Perthshire is the River Tay and its tributaries. It’s massively underestimated for its trout potential, largely because it’s a salmon river. This means the trout are left to do their thing, and their thing is to grow, both in size and number. Perthshire also has lots of great lochs for trout fishing, some of which are stocked and some are entirely wild.
Image

Edinburgh

Trout fishing out of Edinburgh is convenient, rewarding and diverse. There are lots of lochs most of which are within 40 minutes drive of the city. The majority are stocked with rainbow trout which usually provide reliable and entertaining sport. If river fishing is your thing you’d be better to have a trip in Perthshire or Argyll.

1 day trip

​If a singe day is all you have then so be it. Come and enjoy a fishing trip for Scotland’s trout. We Scots feel our trout are internationally important as trout from Scotland were used to populate NZ, Australia, parts of the US, Canada, Chile and more. So it’s only right to catch them in their home! We will choose a venue based on where is fishing best while considering your experience level and location.
Image

3 day trips

A three day ​trout fishing selection will involve visiting the best performing stretches of river​ or lochs​
at the time of your booking. ​You can have a day river fishing, a day on the loch and then repeat whichever you liked best. If you’re in Argyll you could mix estuary sea trout fishing in too. Your guide will make decisions on where to fish based on recent catch returns, trends and years of fishing knowledge. Usually you will fish in a different location each day.
Image

6 day trips

Six days of ​trout fishing will give you the best chance of a trophy fish. We will visit different beats and different rivers to showcase not just the fishing but also the scenery, culture, history and tradition that surrounds ​trout fishing in Scotland. ​If you try river fishing using spiders, nymphs and dries; loch fishing with the three wet fly cast style and pulling streamers for sea trout in the estuary, there’s bound to be one you’ll love!
