Salmon Fishing Guide & Spey Casting Instructor

Ian has been working professionally as a salmon fishing guide and spey casting instructor since 1980 when he owned his own fishing lodge on the West coast of Scotland on the Isle Of Mull. Ian has extensive knowledge of all aspects of salmon, sea trout, and trout fishing, from the smaller spate rivers and lochs of the West Coast to the larger flowing rivers of the East of Scotland where he has organised annual fishing parties on the River Dee, River Findhorn, and River Spey.

Experienced Fishing Guide

Ian was head guide on the Ponoi River on the Kola peninsula in Russia for five years. The Ponoi River is arguably the best Atlantic Salmon fishing river in the world. Ian was also head guide on the Rio Grande, in Tierra Del Fuego, which is home to some of the finest Sea Trout fishing in the world.

Comprehensive Guiding Service

Ian offers a complete and comprehensive guiding service for beginners to intermediate and experienced casters, whether single-handed rod casting or double Spey casting 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 a full working day offering advice and tips on improving casting technique.

You will also learn the many aspects of rivercraft and read the water throughout the many changing conditions of a fishing season from early Spring to late Autumn.
