Chasing Silver Front Cover Boy

I must say, I was extremely fortunate to be the Salmon fisher featured on the front cover of top international fly fishing publication “Chasing Silver” winter edition.


Snap t’ing in the icy River Tweed… 

Big thanks to fly fishing’s gentleman Eoin Fairgrieve/ Speycast Media for using me as the model (so to speak!).

Spring is looming here in Scotland and temperatures are on the rise. To think that this image was only a couple of weeks ago with snow all around us and bitter cold icy temperatures!

More updates to come soon – stay tuned!

Tight lines!

The Latest Goings on at Scotia Fishing!

We’ve been busy little bees at Scotia HQ these last couple months. We’ve been updating our website and busy analysing last years performance. It was a great season and we cannot wait to get started in 2015!

New for 2015 are corporate fishing events, stag do fishing trips and fun team building fishing days. 

We also have some new guided fishing packages including the father and son package and winter packages for Grayling and Pike with special promotions.

Scotia Fishing has also combined with Scotia Golfing to provide Scottish fishing and Golfing at its best. What better way to experience Scotland than enjoying both of our most iconic sports! 

More news on packages coming very soon!

Head guide Callum Conner was out making a film about winter Grayling fishing in Scotland with Speycast Media which you can now see on our home page – “Winterfish, check it out if you haven’t seen it!

When we’ve not been working we’ve managed to get out for a cast for one of our favourite species – the Grayling. This is the time of year when guides get to do some fishing so we try and make the most of it.

The sport has been great up until the recent floods and head guide Callum Conner managed to beat his PB with this fat 48cm Grayling!


If you fancy a days grayling fishing please get in touch!

It’s all go at Scotia but keep checking back for the latest fishing updates as the season progresses!

Tight Lines from the team!

Loop Pro Team Scotland – Callum Conner

If you asked me if I had a choice to join any tackle companies pro team there would be no hesitation in my mind who I would have picked – Loop Tackle! Anyone that knows me well enough will tell you how much passion I have for the brand. Ever since I started working in the fishing industry I’ve had a real soft spot for Loop, they make great gear, it looks good, preforms well and they have a real modern vibe about the company that I find refreshing, especially for a fly fishing brand. I just love what the company does, they’re innovative, from their fly reels down to their fly line packaging ( yes I do get excited by 50/50 underwater release shots on the front of fly boxes, I have serious issues! ). So to be asked to join the new look Loop Pro Team was simply an honour!


Loop Cross S1 and Loop Opti – it doesn’t get any sweeter!

There are a number of people I look up to in the fishing industry for different things, from Ghillies, Photographers to Casting Instructors. In particular I’ve always admired Loop’s photographers, Stephan Dombaj JR, Yngve Ask and now Eoin Fairgrieve, head of the new Loop Akademi. It’s great to be able to work alongside Eoin and I’m really looking forward to meeting the rest of the team, there are some seriously talented guys involved in Loop Pro Team Scotland!

I will have some of the latest Loop fly fishing rods, reels and fly lines for you to try out when on trips with Scotia Fishing or during casting lessons if you’d like to try before you buy – let me know!

Here’s to #Looplife!

Best wishes!
