Guided Islay Fly Fishing Experience April 2018

Fly Fish Islay Sea Trout Fishing


We are now taking bookings for our Guided Fly Fishing Experience commencing Saturday 21st April 2018. Please email David at to book your place or for more info.

This is an exclusive opportunity to join Wychwood Game’s Glen Pointon and former Islay Distillery Manager for a week of fly fishing in spectacular scenery, searching out the wildest of Hebridean hill lochs for brown trout and the saltwater for the ellusive sea trout.


During this week long trip, as our guest you will be part of a small group of only four anglers. We like to keep the groups small so that everyone spends plenty of time with each of the guides to ensure that each guests gets the best possible experience.

For those anglers who enjoy a dram or two, there are no less than 8 iconic malt whisky distilleries on Islay, David used to be distillery manager at the largest of them all so is the perfect host for the whisky enthusiast!

Islay Brown Trout Fishing

There are dozens of hill lochs to choose from on Islay, some more remote than others, all in breathtaking surroundings. It is not uncommon to see osprey fishing whilst on the loch and Islay has fast become the eagle island with regular sightings of golden and white tailed sea eagle.

We fish the lochs from boat and from bank. During the week there is the opportunity to head out with Glen for one of the very remote hill lochs to search out a wee monster fish or two.

Islay Sea Trout Fishing

Islay is an incredible place to fish for sea trout. The fishing is very much tide dependent but we are usually able to give guests a chance to target and maybe even catch a beautiful Islay sea trout.

Listen to Glen and David on The Yorkshire Gent Podcast

During our Guided Islay Fly Fishing Experience in April 2017, we were interviewed by Rob Marsden from The Yorkshire Gent Website. The interview was conducted over the phone which adds to the remote feel. The photos on this blog post were all taken during that trip.
