Why Join us for a Guided Islay Fly Fishing Experience?

This is an exclusive opportunity to join myself, David Wood, former Caol Ila Distillery Manager, and one of a number of experienced local guides 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. I have spent years getting to know the wild lochs of Islay, discovering the haunts of sea trout, and learning how to match the hatch on these beautiful seldom visited waters.

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 a guide 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, I used to be distillery manager at the largest of them all so I make 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 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. Our guides know the most likely spots to be holding fish at different tide states, at each time in the season. We always fish for sea trout with the fly rod and catches of fish of 4lb and above is not uncommon.

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.
