Fishing in the Central Belt close to the major cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh is far more varried and extensive than you might think. Appart from the major rivers - the Clyde and Forth (which are now making a serious comeback) you will also find some excellent and famous still waters.

 

Brown trout fishing is virtually synonymous with Loch Leven which after a major clean up is now back on song. Loch Lomond on the other hand has a variety of species present and has a reputation for big pike.
