Fishing in Scotland with Roxtons
Holidays in Scottish lodges have for generations been part of the sporting calendar. For good reason - they are excellent value and there is plenty for all the family to do whatever their age or interests.
The sport on offer can range from salmon and trout fishing through to stalking and walked up grouse depending on the season.
The Highlands of Scotland remain the last great bastion of the traditional family sporting holiday.
Accommodation tends to be in historic houses, quite large parties of eight to twelve or more can be catered for. And you can take the dog!
Although self-catering is sometimes an option normally a cook and staff are on hand to allow you to make the most of your holiday.
A double handed rod from a 13' - 15' for a 9-10 weight line for the salmon fishing and a single handed 7-8 weight rod is recommended for sea trout and trout fishing.
Sink tip or sinking lines are used in the early season and you then move onto intermediate or full floating lines in the summer months.

There are no required inoculations for travel to Scotland, though you are advised to check with your doctor prior to departure regarding any vaccinations that may be recommended. If you are taking prescription medicines please ensure that you bring enough for the duration of your stay.
The further north you go in Scotland the more frequent the mosquitoes are, particularly in July and August. However, insects are normally not a major problem when using repellents and taking sensible precautions. You may need a mosquito veil in extreme situations but even here a bottle of repellent is often sufficient.
