Pike Fly Fishing Near Gleneagles – In our opinion Pike are the most under rated species in Scotland, these fresh water predators offer unbelievable sport on a fly rod. Scottish Pike grow in excess of 20lb in many of our Lochs.

Pike have no fear and will literally nail your lure or fly with bad intentions just inches away from you, providing heart stopping hits. Once hooked they will often tail walk across the surface of the water in an attempt to free the hook.

We can fish for Pike using jerk baits and modern lure fishing techniques as well, if you don’t fly fish these are equally as effective and exciting methods.
