Want to learn how to fish in Scotland?
Fancy going fishing, but never tried? Maybe you’re a proficient angler and considering entertaining corporate clients with a fishing day. Yes? Then have I got a treat in store for you, so read on…
The treat is fishing in Scotland… but in a style you might never have dreamed of. Yet!
Corporate fishing days in Scotland
Imagine beautiful views across the water; a large dining table at the water’s edge, white linen, gold-plated cutlery, a centre decoration of pine cones and heather to give a true taste of Scotland. If you think that sounds nice, how about this…
Imagine the aroma of hot sizzling bacon and freshly made coffee. That will be the bacon rolls and coffee for your breakfast. And for your gourmet lunch… a mouth-watering pheasant casserole cooked in a redcurrant and port reduction, with minted peas and sautéed organic potatoes. There will be several wee drams of Scotch malt whisky, to enhance the spirit of Scotland of course, and a number of corks will be popping from bottles of fine wine. Mmm! Sounds like a nice restaurant doesn’t it? Wrong.
Gourmet fishing days
It’s not a fine-dining restaurant in Scotland; this setting is ‘on location’ at a specially organised fishing day beside a scenic Loch in Scotland. These gourmet fishing days in Scotland are organised by Alba Game Fishing: a luxury Orvis Endorsed guide service that will deliver whatever type of Scotland fishing experience you fancy. You won’t forget the day in a hurry as it is recorded onto DVD-ROMs with photographs.
Exclusive fishing beats in Scotland
Elegant hotels and exclusive fishing venues off the beaten track are what Alba Game Fishing offers clients; they get the whole place to themselves for the day. Most of their clients tend to be beginners; on corporate days three-quarters have never fished before, and the number of women interested in fishing is rising year on year. Wait for it guys… the women often catch more than the men!
Now… is that down to expert instruction, natural born skill, or is there really something in that tale about female pheromones?

Facts and figures about fishing in Scotland’s rivers and lochs and fishing breaks in Scotland
There’s no doubt that Scotland offers some of the greatest freshwater and sea angling on offer anywhere, the large variety of species denoting that fishing can be enjoyed in Scotland year-round. There’s an abundance of salmon, trout, grayling, Arctic char and coarse fish, as well as commercially stocked waters.
The fishing season in Scotland
The fishing season in Scotland is lengthy: salmon can generally be fished from January to October/November, depending on the river; wild brown trout from March to the beginning of October, and rainbow trout and grayling can be fished year-round.
Fishing in the Tweed, Tay, Dee and Spey rivers
The ‘Big Four’ – Tweed, Tay, Dee and Spey – are the main rivers in Scotland and are well worth getting in a spin about. The Tweed is a great Atlantic ‘autumn’ salmon river, but also good for brown and sea trout fishing. The Tay is the largest of Scotland’s salmon rivers at 120 miles long; the Dee is known for its superb sea trout fishing particularly during June and July, whilst the Spey is possibly the most famous salmon river in the world; excellent for brown trout too.
Learn how to fish in Scotland’s lochs
In addition to these exciting rivers there are some exclusive and little-fished hidden ‘gems’ that are seriously special; lochs that are predictable and fruitful, but not easy to find without assistance. Help is close at hand from many luxury hotels in Scotland, ideally located, where a day’s fishing can be tailor-made to suit anybody from the most ardent angler to the worse novice, and where non-fishing partners can bury themselves in absolute luxury while their other half seeks peace and solitude. Nice thought!
