Guided Fishing in Scotland for Atlantic Salmon

For over 15000 years the Atlantic Salmon has been a prized quarry, and in Scotland, Salmon Fishing is the sport of Kings. Spey Casting and fishing the fly for salmon in the mighty Rivers Tweed, River Tay, River Spey and River Dee can be simply a bucket list wish for most anglers. Alba Game Fishing can help you realise your dreams, and guide you on the best salmon fishing rivers in Scotland.

If you are coming to Scotland from overseas, there is absolutely no need to bring heavy gear with you. all this does is increase your luggage weight and runs the risk of you perhaps losing precious gear in transit. Furthermore, waders and boots that have been worn outside of Scotland need to be thoroughly sterilised and dried prior to wearing in a Scottish river for risk of transferring water born parasites such as Gyrodactalus Salaris. We carry a huge stock of Orvis breathable stocking foot waders, in both mens and women’s sizes, and we also carry a superb stock of Orvis wading boots with Vibram soles and tungsten studs. We even have three pairs of size 15 boots!

We pride ourselves on using the very best salmon fishing tackle, we will arm you with a Scott Mackenzie double hand rod, and we carry everything from 11ft 4 switch rods to 15 foot double hand rods. In addition we have the superb Orvis Mission rods, these are simply superb and the best salmon rod Orvis has ever made. You can try them with us on one of our fly fishing trips.

Everything is provided all you need bring is your enthusiasm. Wonderful scenery; warm knowledgeable guides; premium tackle and service.
