We know it isn’t always easy to travel with fishing tackle. This is why we provide all the necessary equipment and essentials for your guided fly fishing holiday in Scotland. This includes quality rods, reels, lines, flies, waterproofs, lifejackets, hats, polarized glasses, waders and boots. We also provide all the other bits and pieces that are associated with fly fishing.

If you would like to use your own fishing equipment, please ensure it’s cleaned prior to your fishing trip to prevent the spread of the parasite Gyrodactylus Salaris.

Here are a few recommendations if you choose to bring your own fishing tackle.

Trout & Grayling Rods

A 9ft 4wt or 9ft 5wt will cover most traditional applications when river fishing in Scotland for trout and grayling. These are the go to rods when fishing upstream dry fly and downstream wet fly. A 10ft 3wt is recommended, when fishing more modern nymphing techniques on the river. When fishing on Scottish lochs and still waters for brown and rainbow trout, a 9ft 5wt through to a 10ft 7ft are usually the preferred choice.

Salmon Rods

A 14ft 8/9wt double handed rod is an ideal setup for most of the bigger salmon rivers in Scotland, however whatever your used to, is all what matters. A 13ft or 15ft rod is more than suitable. When salmon fishing on the smaller spate rivers of Scotland, a single handed or switch rod can be an ideal choice.

Other Essentials

With the weather in Scotland being somewhat unpredictable at times, it is certainly worth bringing waterproof clothing and extra layers even if the forecast is good. Flies and tippet/leaders do vary depending on species sought after and time of year, however we are happy to provide further details along with answering any other questions you may have prior to your fishing trip.


If driving whilst on holiday is not for you, we can provide airport transfers for your fly fishing trip, along with transport to and from accommodations and fishing venues. Edinburgh airport and Glasgow airport are the recommended airports with frequent flights globally.
