Salmon on our Secret River

We have exclusive access to one of Scotland's best salmon rivers. The Secret River has catch statistics that make the Dee, Tay, Tweed and Spey look second rate. Join us to fish this beautiful, wild highland river for a day of salmon fly fishing. There will be no other anglers other than you (and those of your party).  The river has excellent numbers of exceptionally large salmon, and very comfortable facilities. This is really a big fish in small water experience. We fish with both conventional Spey casting and some newly developed fly fishing techniques (designed by your guide) that have proved very effective.

Salmon on the River Orchy

One of Scotland's most beautiful glens has a delightful river running through it. What's more there is top quality salmon fishing in the River Orchy. Your guide will choose the beat best suited to the time of year and take you to experience a day of peace and quiet with bouts of exhilaration. This river has many moods, and salmon can be caught in low water as well as in spate. Come and fish though some of the famous pools which have produced monster salmon over the years. Either fly or lure fishing are possible.

Sea trout from a drifting boat

Drifting and wet fly fishing on a loch. At Fishing Trip Scotland we are delighted to be able to offer another exclusive venue for salmon, brown trout and sea trout fishing. all at the same venue, sometimes all on the same fly! The fishing consists of using traditional Scottish wet flies from a 16ft boat while drifting in the wind. Highly addictive, seeped in tradition and immensely entertaining this fishing method is authentically Scottish and one we all love.

Sea trout in the estuary

In one day of fishing we will visit a number of productive river mouths to target sea run brown trout. These strong silvery fish are as beautiful as they are sharp witted. They're not easily fooled so splashy casts or visible profiles will put them down. They're a great challenge and though they're more of an expert's fish we have had successful beginner outings for them. What's more they live among salmon so there's always a chance of their (usually) bigger cousins taking hold and putting the tackle, and your nerve, to the test.

Brown Trout

River fishing for browns using the upstream dry, nymphing or even with streamers is great fun and the pastime of many an obsessed angler. We are lucky to have some excellent streams in which to fish for our wild trout. None of the rivers we use have ever been stocked, these are wild fish and they fight like it.

Loch fishing for browns with the traditional wet fly techniques or dry fly fishing has provided some of my best ever fishing memories. Our tactics change throughout the year to match the hatches and conditions. Most of this fishing will take place from a drifting boat, though occasionally we might wade.

Trolling for ferox is what we describe as a 'woolly mammoth trip'. Ferox trout are large apex predator fish which inhabit many of Scotland's deeper lochs. They have been around since mammoths roamed the earth and these gargantuan trout can be caught on rod and line. The technique is to troll large lures or dead-baits behind the boat and wait for a rod to slam over. Rather like having a go for Black Marlin it's not a fish per trip, however when those bites do come one thing that's guaranteed, whether you land it or not, is that you'll never forget it! Taking a ferox trip puts you in with a chance of breaking the precarious Scottish record (currently 30lbs 10oz). I am sure that there are record breaking fish which inhabit the venue we use.

Pike

Pike have a lot of character and I believe pike fishing is underrated. It provides some of the best sport available with rod and line in Scotland. These are fascinating fish and can be caught on the fly or using lures, wading, or drifting or trolling from a boat. Again we use a venue where some very large pike live, and I have known dedicated anglers of other species, following a pike trip, to become dedicated pike anglers. It's that addictive.

Saltwater

From July to December there are good numbers of extremely hard fighting saltwater species around the Argyll coast. Mostly it's pollack we catch with occasional coal fish or wrasse making an appearance, and mackerel coming in numbers in August. They can all be caught on fly or lure and are best fished for from the rocks. Clouser flies or soft plastics for the lure anglers are the winning choices which usually tempt those big brassy pollack from their weedy homes. These fish put a bend in your rod like you wouldn't believe. 
I recommend you only choose this trip if you are agile, as clambering around on coastal rocks isn't for everyone.
