Fishing, River Spey

This evening, I am focusing on fishing for sport in Scotland. This mainly takes place on major salmon and trout rivers such as the Tay, Tweed and Spey. However, there are multiple other possibilities including numerous lochs (lakes), smaller rivers, such as the Garry, Tummel and Esk, and the sea. The fishing season runs approximately from February to October each year. Above and below is a small portfolio of fishing related images which I have accumulated in course of tours around Scotland.

This shot was taken on a small loch (lake) near Eaglesham, south of Glasgow. No doubt a club. Note windfarm in distance, Europe’s largest.

Here is a self-explanatory sign warning non-authorised fisherman to keep away from private fishing.

 Overall, Scotland offers tremendous opportunities for fishing, from the Borders through to the Tay in central Scotland and the Spey in the north. A large support industry has grown up around this activity. From time to time some of tour guests do seek a spot of fishing as part of their Scotland vacation.
