Fly fishing in Scotland: the best holiday locations

If your ideal holiday is relaxing amongst fantastic scenery, fly fishing holidays in Scotland are perfect.

Depending on whether your quarry is salmon, sea trout or trout, there are many options. The River Allan, in Perthshire, filters through Dunblane en route to connecting with the Forth. Rainfall brings migratory fish up from the Forth, with salmon abundant in late summer. Sea trout can be caught around May.

Excellent trout and grayling fishing abound in the Avon, a tributary of the Clyde. Annual memberships are available at competitive rates.

The Esk, running through the Borders, is famous for its sea trout. Daily, weekly and season permits are obtainable from Esk and Liddle Fisheries.
