UK Fishing Vacations

Feel the elemental force of a fast river in spate, the stealth of a slow flowing pool, the calm of a loch, lake or lough, or perhaps the chop of seas in spring and summer. Angling poses challenges with every tide and time of year, bringing new joys when undertaking journeys far from your usual fishing grounds.

We’re fortunate that Scotland offers everything that a rod, line and lure could possibly hope to tackle. The finest salmon rivers flow from our mountains, and lochs large and small hold beautiful wild brown trout to tempt with the careful flick of a well-tied fly. Whether you wish to wade in deep rivers or row your boat to the right spot, there will always be tight lines to strive for here.

Legendary names like the Spey, the Tay and the Tweed may reel you in, or perhaps the moorland lochs with the ghillies and guides of our Hebridean estates may be more your thing? There are endless hidden coves and coastal waters to let out your line and broad stretches of sand for beach-casting. And while Scotland exemplifies all this, there’s no denying Ireland, England and France offer world-class sport too.

Wherever you choose to tie your knots, trust Turas to take you to the places where you’ll find the finest catch. From the right flies to the best time of year, we can connect you with those who have the local knowledge and know-how to make your fishing trip one to remember.
