fishing

Fishing is the most popular pastime in the UK. Different people participate in this exciting sport for different reasons and it could be one or more of the following.

o   Love of being outdoors and connect with nature

o   Experience challenge and thrill

o   Desire to learn a new skill

o   Want to be away from it all

The most common reason you will find with people who fish is that it is simply enjoyable and fun.

Fishing helps you to appreciate and understand nature and importance of looking after the environment. It also helps to reduce stress and improves level of concentration as well as the patience, confidence and self-esteem.

A word (or two) from the project leader

I have been fishing for over twenty years and what started as a casual trip with a friend back in 1997 to a trout fishery in Ayrshire turned into a passion. Least to say that I have been hooked on fishing ever since.

Although I do occasionally go sea fishing and salmon fishing my real passion is fly fishing for wild brown trout and sea trout in the Scottish lochs and rivers. I have fished the wild and remote lochs as far up north as Assynt and Dornoch. Over the last few years I have been mainly focusing on river fishing and have had tremendous success in fishing the river Don in Aberdeenshire, one of the best trout rivers in Britain. Close to home I regularly fish Loch Humphrey in the Kilpatrick hills and the Clyde estuary as well as river Gryffe in Kilmacolm and river Fillan in Crianlarich.

I will ensure that our group outings run smoothly by providing all the necessary help and advice that you may require to have a great and enjoyable time.
