Visit Scotland and Enjoy Fly Fishing

Jun 15, 2008
Throughout the world a few sports are more popular than others and while football attracts huge crowds the sport of fishing still manages to be one of the most popular sports which people enjoy regularly. Fly fishing is one style of fishing that attracts a great deal of attention due to the skill and expertise required to master the art. In places like Alaska and Scotland fly fishing is extremely popular and many people are prepared to travel half way around the globe to visit these destination just to enjoy a few days indulging in the sport.

One of the brilliant things about fly fishing is that it can be enjoyed by virtually anybody. Beginners can sometimes prove to be as successful as professional anglers who have been fishing for years as the sport involves both luck and skill. The fact that the sport is suitable for most helps boost it's popularity but it should also be noted that the places in which they fish are often amongst the most breathtaking scenery rich in interesting flora and fauna.

Scotland is well known for it's tartan, bagpipes and the likes but it is also renowned for it's most incredible, and often dramatic, scenery. Such scenes are far better enjoyed in the early hours when it is far more likely to witness the movements of some of the most beautiful creatures such as deer and stag. Creatures such as otters appear to roam about without a care in the world, or maybe safe in the knowledge that most humans are still tucked up in bed.

When fly fishing in Scotland you are able to choose from a number of world class locations which include the famous rivers of the Tay and Spey. Besides these there are plenty of other salmon runs and too many lochs of all different sizes in which to fish for other species such as rainbow and brown trout. grayling and pike.

When arranging a fly fishing trip to Scotland it is not always safe to assume that you can fish in the local waters as most places are only available for private fishing. Most places will issue a day pass/permit for a low price but it is often best to book a specialist fly fishing vacation package. Many hotels in Scotland have their own fishing rights to fine fishing waters and most offer decent packages otherwise there are a multitude of such packages to choose from available online or in fishing magazines.

Booking a fly fishing vacation can often be a wise decision, especially if taking a vacation as part of a group. Ordinarily some luxuries may well be beyond your budget but the cost is shared in a group. One such essential is the hiring of a local gillie who knows the local waters well enough to provide you with the best locations. A gillie is also likely to impart other information vital to success such as which are the best flies to use in a particular area or which weather and lighting conditions you are fishing in. Such packages take away many of the stresses of organizing such a trip and allow you more time to indulge yourself.

If you have not indulged in fly fishing or you are relatively new to the sport nothing could be better than taking a vacation in Scotland and getting a little training from an A.P.G.A.I. qualified instructor. Advanced Pro Game Angling Instructors are suitably qualified and experienced enough to educate both beginner and even those who have been fishing for many years.

When planning a fishing vacation to Scotland you may find it difficult to choose where to stay. Many choose to stay in hotels or other lodgings near to the Spey or Tay however there are a great many other places with superb fishing opportunities and wonderful scenery. One of the more unusual places, but popular with anglers, is the group of islands off the west coast of Scotland known as the Outer Hebrides or the Western Isles where the waters are crystal clear and often well stocked.
