Trout & Grayling wade fly fishing in the River Annan

A chance to catch a real specimen Trout or Grayling in a priavte stretch of the River Annan

Prime season December to Mid March

The River Annan is one of the finest rivers in Europe with 2lb + fish commonplace and 3lb + specimens every season to our guests’ rods

Background – River Annan

The river Annan is gaining a reputation as a top class grayling fishery, where specimen fish over 2lb are fairly common. 3lb plus fish are regularly caught.

We fish either dry flies in a hatch, or weighted tungsten ‘bugs’ presented on or near the bottom under a form of indicator either cast upstream and slightly across the flow and allowed to drift down or upstream ‘Czech nymph’ style. We can also offer Tenkara style and tuition, a highly effective method, (see video page)

How does your fishing day go?

You can be collected from your hotel by your guide, a day normal runs from 08:30 to 17:30, however we are flexible with timings.

We provide everything you need. Quality fishing tackle and specialist Scottish tied flies. Waterproofs and waders are supplied as are eye protection/sun glasses.

Your guide will be on your shoulder all day and is happy to give you casting tips, take photos and share stories.

When you need solitude you can just enjoy the river.
