Tourism Scotland - Fishing

Game Fishing | Coarse Fishing | Sea Angling
Open Season | The Game Angling Code

It starts with the water. It falls on the distant mountains and moors, joins a thousand silver streams between the heather before spilling into a lonely lochan or swelling a tumbling cool burn.  The streams multiply, feeding island-studded lochs and grander rivers that sweep down broad glens and on through softer pastures and rich lowlands towards the sea. A land of sparkling waters, Scotland has perhaps the greatest variety of freshwaters in Europe.

But - no published guide
No "Where-to-Fish", will find the best of Scotland's fishing for you. That you will only do for yourself. What Scotland offers the fisherman is much more than a specimen fish or a record bag: it is the rare chance to explore and to discover.


Hidden Gems
Of course, there are fabulous and famous marks for the sea angler - but many other areas remain virtually unfished. Scottish waters have produced some monster pike - but many remote lochs are still to be tried. And there are trout lochs, hidden gems among the hills, that will not see a fisherman's fly from one summer to the next. For this fishing you need only a spirit of adventure - although a map, a compass and a pair of walking boots wouldn't go amiss.

River Tweed

Pure Waters
You may find your specimen fish or record bag. You may not. What you will find are pure waters, and peace and quiet amid stunning scenery. It is as good as fishing gets.
