At Alba Game Fishing we pride ourselves in using the high quality fishing tackle to help maximise your chances of success.

We provide everything you need to fish in Scotland. Our breathable Orvis waders are comfortable and we match them with sturdy wading boots fitted with PosiGrip tungsten studs to ensure a good grip.  Our trout, salmon, pike and sea flies are hand tied here in Scotland by our guides.

All year round, regardless of what time of year I would recommend waterproof trainers for boat fishing waterproof outdoor boots for bank fishing.

Nov – March:

Warm trousers a long sleeved T-shirt, shirt and a thick fleece. A warm hat and most important, polarised sunglasses.

Alba will provide lightweight waterproof jacket, over trousers and if wading we supply waders, boots and auto inflate life vests.

April – Oct:

Lightweight trousers(convertible’s are best) a long sleeved T-shirt, and a lightweight fleece. In April, Sept and Oct the weather can turn cool so bring an extra layer. A baseball hat and warm hat as back up and most important, polarised sunglasses.

Scottish weather is totally unpredictable. Because we are close to the sea, a large continent, the arctic and the warm air from the gulf stream, there are many conflicting influences.This can however make for some dramatic scenery and skyscapes and at times the light is breathtaking.

In the winter the temperature tends to hover around the 3 degrees c mark, with occasional frosts, snow tends to only settle on higher ground and in the mountains. We have an expression in Scotland, 4 seasons in one day and in the summer this can sometimes be the case, so its best to always have a few spare layers.
