North America, Scotland

A warm welcome to our North American guests

All of our guides are Scottish and have spent a lifetime fishing these waters. They are all dedicated professionals, willing to help, share knowledge and experience and go the extra mile to look after you. Most of our guides are retired, military or business men, sharing their passion and living an outdoor life.

From touchdown to take-off, you are in our hands, and we will help you create lifelong memories.

“World class fly fishing, hospitality, equipment and staff! I have fished with the some of the finest lodges in Alaska and Patagonia. A day spent with Alba game Fishing will create a lifetime of great Scottish memories!” Jim Goldsworthy, Texas

==============================================================

Marge and I wish to thank you for your graciousness, kindness and thoughtfulness in hosting our “Hidden Gems of Scotland” trip. You took care of every detail, even the last minute changes and made it all work. You and your team are true ambassadors of Scotland, thank you for sharing your patriotism, heritage and love of your country.

Two special thanks, first to you for teaching me the “single spey cast” and secondly to Fiona for exceeding all Marge’s expectations. If you ever find yourself in Texas, you have a place to stay Greg and Marge McGowan, Orvis “Hidden Gems” customers, Texas

Useful Facts about Visiting Scotland

Weather

Scotland has 4 seasons and a temperate climate, winters are cold but never too severe. This is because of the North Atlantic drift, which sweeps warmer air across the Atlantic and towards Scotland.

Spring – Average 8-10 degrees c. Though on my 40th Birthday April 2002 it was 20 degrees and baking hot…unpredictable! Late April, May can be spectacular with weather.

Summer – Average 15 degrees c. Can reach the heady heights of the 30’s however in a blue moon. Tends to be wetter and warmer.

Autumn – My favourite time of year – Average 10-15 degrees c. Stunning light and colours, crisp fresh mornings, chilly as the sun drops.

Winter – Average 5 degrees c. Where you will be fishing with us, we only average about 5-10 days snow a year. We fish through the winter for grayling and pike. Cold is never an issue. Bad clothing is!

Clothing

Generally wear base layers throughout and layer up and down. This is because we have a hugely unpredictable weather pattern. For fishing and touring trips, wear base layers, lightweight fleeces or quilted Polartec down jackets and waterproof outdoor shoes. If you don’t have room to pack rain gear (you will need it) let us know your sizes, we will provide some for you. Trips never get cancelled due to bad weather or rainfall. The fish are wet anyway, they don’t mind. Often overcast and wet days are the most productive. Embrace Scottish weather, changing light, sweeping skyscapes and pleasant temperatures, make this an ideal place to visit.

Insects

Don’t worry, nothing to worry about. No mosquitos. Nothing really biting you unless you are on the west coast on a windless day as the sun falls. Then you will encounter the Scottish Midgie! a kind of “no see um” wearing a kilt. Otherwise, chill. We don’t get bothered! The only fly issue we encounter as fishing guides, are which ones to select for the fish!

Bears, Snakes, Wolves

We killed them all long ago…none left…relax. Well almost, we have only one snake called an Adder. I’ve seen one in my life and I live in the outdoors.
