Fishing in Scotland

Scotland has over six thousand lochs, ranging from small hill lochs offering wild brown trout fishing to some of the largest freshwater bodies in the UK with perch, artic char, ferrox trout, sea trout, brown trout, grayling, pike, salmon and chubb. Also there are very few places in Scotland where you are not within easy reach of one of the hundreds of commercial fisheries, predominantly offering rainbow trout fishing, blues and steelheads and coarse species such as carp, perch and tench.

Scotland also has over seven thousand miles of coastline with charter boats and sea fishing stations in abundance. And one good thing is, no national rod license is required in Scotland as there is in England and permits for most of the river systems can be obtained from a variety of tackle shops and hotels.

Whether you prefer fishing alone, or bring the entire family along, it will be an enjoyable experience. Along with the sport of fishing, you can take pleasure in the stunning surroundings. Children can play in the water or along the shore whilst you cast your line and chat to your wife. Indeed, fishing in Scotland should not be missed.
