    Wink Hello! :)

    Hi everyone,

    My name's Andy and I've joined to help me get back into Fly Fishing after over a decade. I live in sunny Glasgow and looking to fish the local rivers and the sea lochs on the west coast.

    I've been reading up on recent legislation concerning permissions and catch/return, etc as it's changed since I was younger.

    I'm mainly looking for recomendations on the best spots on the greater Glasgow rivers and west coast sea lochs like Loch Long, Goil, Gare Loch, basically sea lochs around the firth of Clyde.

    I'm not fussed about species and I've read up on the seasonal cut-off dates for Brown Trout and Salmon and that there are various rules depending on which club/area on the rivers.

    I know there are a lot of opinions out there (I work in IT) :P

    Anyway, thanks for any advise in advance and may your knots hold!

    Regards,
    Andy

    Hi Andy, the River Kelvin River Kelvin Angling Association should be local-ish to you, and the season permit currently runs about 40, i don't do any river fishing now, nor for migratory species, Salmon Sea Trout, the Kelvin has had fairly good Salmon runs the last few years (rain dependant obviously) and has steadily improved. If you want to travel a bit further afield the River Clyde, brown trout, grayling, coarse and a run of migratory fish, price dependant on what species you want to fish for. A look here might be useful River Clyde - the unfamous fly

    Can't help you much with the Lochs you have chosen as i kinda stick to commercial fisheries these days (Leven, Menteith, Glencorse etc..) when time allows. But i'm pretty sure a Bruce Sandison book (bruce sandison - rivers and lochs of scotland) would fill in the blanks there.

    Best regards
    Jim
    The fishing has been so hard lately, that even the liars aren't catching anything
