Example Day

The Scottish Salmon Guide is there to make sure your dreams come true, fishing for Atlantic Salmon on one of Scotland’s finest salmon rivers.  Scotland is blessed with both beautiful scenery and exceptional wildlife and I will ensure you have a great experience amongst these peaceful and relaxing settings.  It’s not just the salmon fishing that you’ll enjoy, I have years and years’ worth of fishing stories and a few fine jokes too!

If you have never experienced a day’s salmon fishing, then hopefully this will give you an idea regarding the cost.  A typical day includes your permit, one to one tuition and tackle hire for one person.  This starts in the region of £200, but varies based on the time of year, as the permit prices vary greatly depending on river, beat and time of year.

Why not make a weekend of your visit and bring along your partner?  Arrive in time for dinner at one of Scotland’s finest hotels, enjoy great Scottish food and hospitality before retiring to the bar.  Wake up to a full Scottish breakfast and a strong black coffee, which will blow away the cobwebs, I believe whisky can have that effect!  

I can collect you from your hotel and deliver you safely to one of Scotland’s finest beats, which I’ll have personally chosen to ensure the best of prospects, based on time of year, conditions and recent catches.  The Ghillie at your beat will no doubt be a personal friend of mine and our job is to make sure you have a fantastic time. 

You’ll be served up a beautiful bank side lunch, provided by a local delicatessen, made with great local produce.  I’ll make sure there is always a cup of hot coffee available, a soft drink or something harder if you prefer.  Throughout the day, I’ll be keeping an eye on you, assisting with both tuition and knowledge and always be ready with the landing net and camera.

While you’re enjoying the outdoors, your partner could be relaxing in a local spa, shopping at a nearby high quality country store, walking or enjoying a good book on the riverbank.  There is a huge range of local activities and I’ll happily provide you with plenty of great ideas.

At the end of your day, I will return you to your hotel, in plenty time to get ready for a wonderful dinner, a couple of drams and an early night.

It’s that simple, tell me your requirements and budget and I’ll arrange the rest.
