So the water has started to warm up and as the trout are down deep staying out of the sun it was time for the Pike on the fly !!


Had a box full of various bait fish patterns and couldn't wait to try them out. I love pike fishing on the fly especially when you can see the pike chasing your fly right to the boat. This is my best so far in 2021 but hopefully a bigger one is in the weed somewhere!!!


I will be running guided fly fishing trip all through 2021 so if you fancy catching some of theses beautiful fish please get in touch.

Lovely fish of about 4lb returned to fight another day.

Another fantastic trip to Loch Leven with a friend we knew it was going to be difficult as it was bright conditions without a cloud in the sky and a really cold north wind. However after about 15 minutes I had a fish on and it came off at the net !!!! Not a big fish but because Loch Leven fish are so hard to catch I wasn't happy.


David said at least we know they are here ! We kept fishing buzzers on a very long leader ( 30ft ) on a sink tip on a very long cast and we started getting bites. We ended up having 6 fish between us and a couple of absolute crackers over around the 4lb mark. Can' wait to get back and keep exploring this massive venue.

Absolutely stunning day clear blue skies and just a slight ripple. Carron Valley has a huge population of wild brown trout and I couldn't wait to get out onto the water. I was thinking its gonna be difficult conditions with not a cloud in the sky but what a day it turned out to be.




After a quick chat with Jimmy the owner who gave me the heads up on fly selection and locations around the loch I started fishing diawl bachs on a floating line. But realised quickly the fish were holding about 3 - 4ft deep. So changed to a little bit of a special fly which had a tungsten bead to keep it in that zone for longer and the fish just kept coming. 10 to the net and probably more lost a fantastic day. This venue is big and can be a bit daunting for a new angler but I decided to have an hour at each spot and see what happened a good tactic when learning new venues.



I'm hopefully going to spending a lot more time at Carron Valley they have excellent boats and facilities not to mention the scenery is some of the best in Scotland so if you fancy a trip please get in touch.
