Hello all,

I'm investigating a number of waters not too far from Edinburgh for pike on the fly. This water looks great, especially given no road access so hopefully less fished. I know it has wild brown trout but has anyone ever seen or heard of pike existing here?

Happy to discuss in DMs also.

Thanks in advance!

Best,

Louis

Thanks Jimmy. Saved me a long walk and fruitless pike session! Be interested to hear about other waters you'd recommend locally?

I've fished Skene since the 70's, definitely no pike but there's a few pike waters near Hawick.
Alemoor and Acreknowe for starters.
Also St Marys loch and probably Loch of the Lowes right next to it.
