Gartmorn Dam Fishery, Clackmannanshire Country Park

Gartmorn Dam Fishery is located within the Gartmorn Dam Country Park in Sauchie. It is a large nature reserve popular with walkers, cyclists, sailing enthusiasts and last but not least, fishermen. The water contains both Rainbows and Brown trout but is presently in its 5th year of a Back to Brown campaign, whereby it is gradually returning itself to a brown trout only water as the seasons go by.

Harpsdale Fishery, Halkirk

Each September for the last 4 years, my local fishing club, the Fenmore, based in Edinburgh, has been visiting Wick for a long weekend away, sampling the fishing venues and a few of the drinking establishments along the way. Having struck up a friendship with a local fishing club in Wick, the Back Bridge club, we decided in September 2007 to start up an inter-club competition, where we would fish against each other for a trophy as well as have a good laugh at the same time.

Rosslynlee Trout Fishery, Peniculk

Rosslynlee Trout Fishery is located about 5 miles from the outskirts of Edinburgh and is one of the most local fisheries to myself and one I have visited on many occasions this year and for several years before. The fishery grounds are very well kept and the lodge on site sells tackle, flies, refreshments and more importantly hot drinks, which were just the ticket on a chilly mid-November day like today.

Loganlea Fishery is a water board reservoir high up in the Pentland Hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Taking the turn off at the Flotterstone Inn pub off the A702 you climb the best part of 1000 feet up into the hills passing Clencourse Reservoir on the way before you arrive at Loganlea.
