What to expect
If based in Edinburgh, we will meet you at the harbour launch point (1 hour) Departure times vary depending on tide times, each session lasts approx 6 hours. Everything you need will be provided, the best quality sea fishing tackle, brand new auto – inflate (crewsaver) life vests, photography. Fishing is fly or spin casting with lures, jig heads, and soft plastics lures.
Your professional guide will assist you on the boat. Trips are typically 6 hours, though we are flexible. The spots we fish tend to be 25-50ft in depth and close to the shoreline, this means that with a westerly wind, the boat is relatively sheltered on the East Coast, and makes for a pleasant days fishing.
It is possible to keep some fish for the table on this trip, though we don’t encourage guests to kill everything. Sustainable fishing is our aim. If for some reason the weather prohibits the trip, we have a worthy alternative trout fishing loch nearby.
