Bucket list – Fishing in Scotland
Last year, we had two couples come on, what was for them a “Bucket List” experience. A once in a lifetime holiday in Scotland. Both trips were 10 days and tailored to individual needs. Both couples have rebooked for 2021!
Stewart Collingswood, founder, and MD said “..this gives me great satisfaction that we are delivering something memorable and truly special. Our hard work and attention to detail are finally being recognised and rewarded.”
Alba Game Fishing is now a Tour Operator and 80% of the work is in the design and planning of the vacation. By drawing on the combined knowledge of our team, we have collectively over 100 years of experience to offer you.
Once we agree an itinerary and a deposit is paid, our team get to work. The first task is to secure the accommodation. Scotland can get very busy and the best hotels are sold out quickly.
Concierge service for Scotland – leave it to us
In addition, included in your trip is a concierge service on the lead up to your arrival in Scotland. We can assist with any aspect of your visit. Recommend good restaurants, shops, attractions and places to visit. Book theatre and sporting events…the answer is yes, what’s the question.
With regards to the fishing, the species to target, very much depends on what time of year you choose to visit.
The Fishing Calendar in Scotland
March, April and May is prime time for trophy river trout and spring salmon. June is prime for sea trout and Highland trout.
July an August are excellent for surface action and fly fishing for pike and Saltwater trips.
In August the summer grilse runs of salmon are picking up and the Highland rivers and the Spey are in full flow.
September is a month when almost everything is on song. The Autumn runs of salmon re in full swing. Pike fishing starts to produce some real trophy fish. The Saltwater fishing is excellent because the sea is approaching peak temperature for baitfish.
In October and November salmon fishing is at its best and the grayling in the river become active.
