Fishing in Britain


For trout and salmon anglers, the United Kingdom has a wealth of facilities ranging from Highland lochs to massive reservoirs, from graceful chalk streams to mighty salmon rivers.


The principal genres of fishing (angling) available in the UK are:


  • game fishing, which generally means flyfishing for salmon and trout

  • coarse fishing

  • sea fishing


One of the very first fishing websites on the Internet was the Scottish Angling Showcase which has details of many rivers and lochs, a section on fishing seasons and a magazine section.


Although primarily a club site, the website of the Heriot F P Angling Club is well worth a visit. Based in Edinburgh, this site has up-to-date reports of many Scottish trout fisheries as well as a lot more of general interest to the angling fraternity.


Anglers who dress their own flies will find some innovative patterns on the Trout Flies website. Please also submit your own favourite dressings to this new website to help it become an valuable resource for fly fishing enthusiasts from around the World.
