S.A.I.A. leases approximately 6 miles of double bank salmon and trout fishing on the river Spey with 12 miles of double bank on the river Dulnain. The Spey beats are Upper Castle Grant with approximately 2 miles of mouth watering fly fishing water from the New Bridge down to Slop Thomas and New Bridge to Broomhill Bridge.

It is no idle boast that we believe our angling club water is probably the best in Britain. It is the quality of the environment up here in the Scottish Highlands that combines with the fishing to create an exceptional experience. There are stunning views of the Cairngorm Mountains from Dulnain Mouth, park like vistas upstream from Tarric Mor, the majestic, classic highland river tumbling through Clach na Strone down to Big Stream then under Grantown-on-Spey Old Bridge into the Lurg (the Lurig), the Long Pool and finally to Slop Thomas. Each pool and run a class act, water to get your pulse pumping

Our claim is not unfounded, being supported by the word of anglers who travel to Grantown from all corners of the world. Visitors recognise that a fishing permit for our Association water is just the ticket, representing a real chance to encounter a Spey salmon in a little bit of heaven, at a price that does not break the bank.

What a place to fish while you watch the osprey swoop, the otter slink and kingfishers dart in the sparkling waters of the Spey. Then the rod bends, the reel screams and you forget everything as you join battle with Salmon the Leaper, King of Fish!

Discover Speyside magic for yourself, take a pictorial tour of the river to view the Spey in all seasons, whether basking in sunshine or blanketed in winter snow. I bet it will tempt you.
