What clothing to wear when fishing in 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.

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

Winter Fishing in Scotland – 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.
