Fly fishing is a wonderful way to experience and enjoy the wild grandeur of Scotland with Lochaber hard to beat for the diversity of fly fishing available.  Whether you have never fished before and are looking to "Learn Fly Fishing" or are an experienced Wild Atlantic Salmon or Wild Brown Trout fisher, wanting a day or two on guided/coaching excursions in the secluded lochs and rivers in the Glens of Lochaber, all of which are in the habitat of the golden eagle, osprey, red deer, otter, pine marten and red squirrels; you will be hooked on the highland for life.

Fishing Scotland ™ is a locally established (1995) private fly fishing school with Registered Professional Guide/Coaching staff, fully insured and covered with Professional Indemnity with extensive experience throughout Scotland and its surrounding islands.

Private Day excursions for individuals, small groups and families (youngsters over 8 years of age) and Corporate Teams are all welcome. It’s very easy to “Learn fly fishing” with Fishing Scotland ™.  Just be dressed for the weather of the day as if for walking – bring a hearty picnic lunch with you.  Fishing Scotland ™ provide all else including: a full time guide/coach, all fly fishing tackle, permits, access, Wellington boots and Land Rover or ML270 transport to and from the fishing location(s) of the day from the Roy Bridge/Spean Bridge area.

The Fishing Scotland ™ Wild Atlantic Salmon fishing season opens on January 15th until October 6th.

All Fishing Scotland ™ fishing locations, lochs, rivers and streams are within private estates throughout the Lochaber area, providing a unique opportunity to visit wild and secluded places among the mountains and historic glens of Lochaber.
