Come and learn to Fly Fish at the Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery.
Glen of Rothes has 6 acres of water,
set in magnificent Highland scenery in the Northeast of Scotland,
and provides excellent Stillwater bank fishing for Rainbow
trout, as well as for Browns, Blue rainbows and
Brook trout. The lochs are mainly fly only, but there is a dedicated coarse
loch with superb quality Carp, bream, orfe and tench well
into double figures and is the only coarse loch in the area and a seperate bait loch suitable
for families with rainbow trout. Whether you are an
expert or just looking to try something new during your holiday,
there is no need to book ahead, unless you require instruction or guiding. Just come to the lodge to
buy your day or part-day permit, and you will receive friendly
advice on what flies and tackle to use (rods and landing nets
are available for hire if you don't have your own). The water
from the Fishery flows only a mile before joining the mighty
River Spey, renowned throughout the world for it's salmon
fishing, and the area is also the heart of the Scotch Whisky
industry. There are 30 distilleries within a 20-mile radius
of the Fishery, many of which are open for visitors to tour
round and have a free sample of the produce - the Fishery
itself stocks a number of tagged fish each month, and the
angler that catches one immediately receives £50 cash, providing you
have entered into it and always ask about it.
We can forget now and then to say about it.
During the summer, we have a resident Osprey, and there
is often an Otter on the go during the winter months.
There is food available along with a well stocked tackle shop for all your tackle needs from all major brand names.
Get away from it all for a while!
The lochs are stocked on a regular basis, and daily during the summer, to ensure
a steady head of fish that will give a challenging but highly rewarding day's fishing.
The average weight of each fish caught has been steady at 2lb ever since the Fishery
opened in 1994, and the record for the heaviest rainbow trout stands at 18 lbs and 9 ozs
Catches of over 30 fish for a day are quite achievable for those who
have got to know the water and how it fishes. Now that the lochs are matured and fly life
is abundant, the dry fly sport is exceptionaland even the huge carp in the lochs will
take a well presented fly with the best being taken around 26 lbs in weight.
Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery is a member of both the
North of Scotland Stillwater Fisheries Association,
and the Association of Scottish Stillwater Fisheries.
