Fly fishing in Perth Scotland offers the visiting angler a multitude of fishing options. Perthshire is home to some of the best Salmon, Trout and Pike fishing in Scotland. It’s home to some of the most prolific Salmon fishing rivers in Europe, including the mighty River Tay.
Our team of professional fishing guides combine over 50 years of local knowledge, passion and experience of fishing in the Perthshire countryside.
Salmon Fly Fishing in Perth Scotland
Experience Salmon fishing near Perth in Scotland on the iconic River Tay with our professional fishing guides. Salmon fishing in Scotland is not just about the fishing, this is the home of Salmon fly fishing.
Our guides will teach you how to Spey cast using double handed fly rods or you can spin cast which is often very effective given the right conditions.
We also offer guided fishing trips on the lesser known rivers in Perthshire like the Tummel, Earn, Isla, Garry and Tilt. These can often be productive Salmon rivers in the right conditions, some fish better in the spring, some in the back end.
Using our knowledge and experience of these rivers we will choose the river and beat we think offers you the best chance of landing that prized Atlantic Salmon!
Trout Fly Fishing in Perth Scotland
Scotia Fishing can organise guided Trout fly Fishing in Perth on one of Scotland’s most iconic Trout fishing lochs, Loch Leven. This shallow fertile loch has some of the best natural feeding in Scotland. Trout grow here to epic proportions, but be warned – they are no push-overs!
When the fish are on here there is simply no better Loch in Scotland! Loch Leven is also steeped in history, its unique strain of Trout have been introduced all over the globe, Tasmania, Australia especially.
Fly fishing in Perthshire is not not just about Loch Leven, there is an abundance of lochs and rivers in Perthshire offering quality fishing for wild brown trout and grayling. What the wild brown trout often lack in size they make up for in beauty and spirit.
Grayling are our winter saviour, when the Salmon season is over the grayling fishing really kicks of! They tend to shoal up and offer great sport in the colder months. The ‘lady of the stream’ (as they are often referred to) are a firm favourite with Scotia Fishing guides due to their beauty.
We can organise trips all year for grayling but the peak season is really November – February.
