Pike are my true passion and especially targeting them with a fly rod, although we do offer any method fishing trips for pike. In my opinion there nothing more exhilarating than watching a pike chase your fly from over 12 feet away in gin clear water, seeing its gills flare up and savagely hit your fly. Of course you have to put the shaking to one side and remember to set the hook, then hold on for dear life!
Scotland has loads to offer the travelling trout fly fisherman, in some of the most scenic settings in the world. Often we find ourselves fishing in the shadow of a castle, palace or an old ruined abbey! Trips can be arranged to target wild hill loch trout that very rarely see and anglers fly. We have access to our own private waters, some which has an abundance of wild free rising trout, others the fishing is harder but the rewards are greater, which is often the case. Guided Trout fishing trips on the world famous Loch Leven or Scotland’s premier Stillwater trout venue, the Lake of Mentieth. We have access to many smaller waters to, easily fished from the bank and suitable for shorter sessions if required.
Again a rapidly growing avenue of our sport. And I must admit I was a little bit slow on the uptake. But perch offer great sport on light tackle and yes, you can target them with a fly rod too! If your intending bringing youngsters along for a trip. Perch is a great species to target as sport can often be fast and furious.
