Fishing Guide Service
We provide a fishing guide service on the River Spey and it's tributaries.
A fishing guide will help you make the most of your fishing experience, whether you are new to fishing in the area or feel that you are not best utilizing your time on the river. A fishing trip with a fishing guide can offer amazing benefits, even to an experienced game angler.
The aim of guided fishing is to catch fish whereas the aim of fishing tuition is to teach specific skills of techniques
The focus of a day'sguided fishing is primarily on catching fish (although we make no promises) so, instead of me finding out if there are any particular skills you want to learn, we will choose the method we think most likely to catch on the day. That does not mean that no fishing instruction will be given. If we introduce a casting technique that is new to you or a particular style of fishing that you are unaccustomed to we will provide a structured coaching session to help you get the best out of the method.
If you’ve never tried river fishing before, a guided fishing trip is an excellent place to start. As a fishing guide I am sure to help you improve your casting and fishing techniques.
Couple this with an in-depth knowledge of over 40 Years Experience fishing the River Spey and you have a unique fishing opportunity during which we can help you achieve your fishing potential. All casting tuition and fishing instruction is included in the guided fishing days. We can also supply equipment by prior arrangement.
