Synonymous for its Salmon fishing on the rivers, which is steeped in years of history and tradition. Anglers from all over the world are attracted here in the hope of catching that ‘bar of silver.’ The season on some rivers starts in January and ends in October or November. You can fish on impressive vast open rivers to small tributaries and everything in between.

Rivers and hill lochs also hold brown trout, rainbow trout and grayling. Winter fishing for pike in many of Scotland’s lochs, large and small, has been growing in popularity in recent years, as is winter fishing for grayling on many rivers – with virtually no close season, meaning you can fish all year round.
