My 7 year old and I had a great time over two days with Derek and Scott. They both related very well to my son and took us to locations that enabled my son to have success and have fun.

I fished with Duncan on the River Awe on 11 August 2018. Duncan arrived on time, had first rate equipment, and provided solid instruction on casting and how to fish the river. I'd fish with Duncan again and would recommend him to a good friend.

we have used 50+ guides, and Duncan is by far the best. We did not catch fish, but not because he did not try - it is a crappy year for getting them. In spite of this, we had a great time, and would recommend...More

Yes I do. The best thing to do is have a look at my website for Fishinguide Scotland think about what you might like to catch, and then tell me when you'd like the trip!
