Do you need a fishing holiday in Scotland? Or want fishing lessons or fly casting lessons ? Or just fancy a days fishing at a trout fishery in Central Scotland ? You have come to the correct place.
The fishery is set in beautiful natural surroundings. It is spring fed with crystal clear water plus a natural feeder burn. There is an abundance of natural insect life and an abundance of aquatic life including nymphs, buzzers, fry, minnow, stickleback, beetles, shrimp, snails, flies, amphibians and terrestrials which encourages the trout to be free rising, in fact it is not unusual to see trout rising even on the coldest and dullest of days, giving excellent surface sport.
Floating, intermediate and sinking lines work well with a long leader. Buzzers, Bloodworm, Nymphs (Pheasant Tail, Hares Ear, Damsels, Dragonfly), Attractor Lures, Cats, Fritzs, Crafetyes, Dancers, Wagglers, Emergers, Dry Flies and selections of traditional wet flies all catch plenty fish.
