Fishing in Scotland includes opportunities for salmon, brown trout and sea trout angling , but coarse fishing is increasingly popular. Angling is the most important participation sport in the country. It makes the ideal place for a holiday or vacation and there are a weath of tackle shops, guides and ghillies who can help you.

On the west coast you will find hundreds of small spate rivers, streams and lochs, while in the east you find the classic salmon rivers of the Tay, Tweed, Dee and Spey. Further north is Caithness and Sutherland which is a patchwork quilt of lochs streams and rivers. Even on the islands quite exceptional fishing can be found.

 

In the central belt around Glasgow and Edinburgh you will find some good put and take fisheries as well as lochs and even the local rivers like the Clyde offer good sport these days and are within minutes of the conurbations.

To the south closer to the border with England are some exceptional fisheries, including the Tweed on the east coast known for its salmon. To the west you will find the Solway rivers which are famous for their sea trout as well as big late running salmon.
