Guided Salmon Fishing in Scotland

Ian offers a full and comprehensive guiding service from complete beginners to intermediate and experienced casters, whether it is single handed rod casting or double speycasting with the traditional two-handed spey and switch rods.

Ian’s intimate knowledge of his many and varied beats throughout Rivers Findhorn, Dee, Spey, and Avon (A’an) makes him the perfect guide, dedicating time to the needs of his clients over the period of a full working day offering advice and tips on improving casting technique.
