    Default Greetings from Edinburgh

    Hi everyone,

    I am originally from Belgium but recently moved to Edinburgh to pursue my PhD (located in Kings building campus). Been fishing my whole life, mainly on pike but had a bit of an hiatus during my college years. Recently started fishing again on pike while visiting my parents in Sweden and now I want to pick up fly fishing whilst here in Scotland. I have flyfished a little bit before on stillwater in Sweden but was not met with great succes.
    I would like to do some stillwater fishing on lochs but would absolutely love to learn how to fly fish on little streams and rivers for brown trout or greyling. I have a shimano biocraft 5wt 8'6 flyrod at the moment with a bunch of random flies I do not know the name of so any tips on tackle is welcome as I am still a bit lost of what I would need to start.

    Hopefully by next fishing season, I will have saved up enough to purchase a second hand car so I have access to more fishing spots. For now, I hope to book some casting lessons as I am mainly self taught which I guess is not a good thing.

    Hope to learn a lot from everyone here and if anyone is looking for a fishing buddy near Edinburgh, I would highly appreciate it!

    Best wishes,

    Bazungu

    Hi there welcome to the forum, I'm near Livingston only 10 miles from Edinburgh, I'm far from an expert but if you want to arrange a day on the Almond I could show you the basics.

    Cheers Al
