Welcome to the Scottish Flyfisher website

Amongst the heather clad hills and valleys of Scotland there are some very nice Fly Fisheries, Rivers and Lochs that offer a great choice of waters for the discerning fly fisherman/woman from natural brown trout waters to large Lochs like Loch Leven for that wild brown trout experience, and the Lake of Menteith who can offer you 700 acres of pure fishing pleasure for both brown and rainbow trout.  

The majority of commercial fisheries within Scotland are based within an hour or so of urban areas, and regular stock their waters with Rainbow, Tiger, Blue & Brown and Golden Trout and they provide good facilities and easy access to instruction and equipment for the non-anglers wishing to try their hand at fly fishing for the first time as well as providing great fishing for the more experienced angler. 

Scotland’s brown trout fishing is better known for beautiful lochs, rivers and streams full of hard fighting wild trout and grayling. 

Within Scotland loch fishing opportunities are vast, you can fish from a small highland loch surrounded by heather and roaming deer to lowland lochs.

Trout fishing in Scotland is like a pilgrimage for many lucky enough to plan a fly fishing holiday in Scotland as it offers some fantastic fishing. The rivers Spey and Tweed are of the most popular in Scotland, and the River Tweed being especially good for both salmon and brown trout fly fishing.

Open season for brown trout fishing is from 15th March – 30th September. Some rivers and lochs open on 1st April and close in early October.

Scotland is also home to some of the very best Grayling fishing rivers in Europe where 3lb plus specimens are caught every year! Grayling can be caught and fished for all year but November – March is considered the peak season.
