Instruction and guiding
Combining your fishing trip with a lesson from a qualified casting instructor will help to maximise your time spent on the water and ultimately, improve your chances of catching more fish.
All forms of fly fishing require good fly presentation in all wind and weather conditions.
Regardless of your casting ability, starting a fishing trip under the expert guidance of an instructor will improve your casting technique and river skills, allowing you the opportunity to safely and effectively present your fly across the stream.
To make your time spent on the water more enjoyable, investing in some casting instruction at the beginning of your trip is money well spent. A list of recommended instructors can be found on this link.
If you want to fish somewhere you haven't been to before, then a Guide can make all the difference between success and failure, especially if the fishery you are going to does not supply its own ghillie or other help for you.
Guides will help you chose the right place to fish, make sure you have the right equipment and use the right techniques. On top of that they will often provide transport, lunch and an endless supply of fishing knowledge, talk and enthusiasm. A list of recommended guides can be found at this link.
Third party instruction on the beat
Be sure to check with your ghillie that the beat is prepared to allow instructors and or guides on the beat. Never turn up with an instructor or a guide without having cleared it first, as this might cause bad feeling with the ghillie which won't do much to help your trip.
Local Fishing Guide.
Fancy a day out fishing on Loch Lomond, whether a beginner or seasoned angler, you'll find the experience very enjoyable. Get in touch with The Lomond Angler for more details. I provide the boat, permit, rods, tackle and life jackets. All you need to bring with you is warm and water proof clothing.
The Lomond system provides some of the best game and fly fishing available in the UK with day, weekly and season tickets available. The salmon and trout fishing season on the Lomond System opens in February until October each year.
There is some fantastic sea trout fishing on the fly, wading out on the rivers and in the Clyde Estuary during the Summer months.
