Welcome to Assynt Fly Fishing

Assynt – a tiny yet so very unique part of the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. Situated in the very far Northwest Highlands, around five hous drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow the long journey to get here is worth every minute. In its twisting streams and steel-blue lochs, covering almost as much area as the land itself, you will find some of the very best truly Wild Brown Trout fishing.

Guided Fly Fishing for all – from novice family groups to the veteran angler, everyone welcome! I am certain we will have a fantastic experience!

Thanks for a great day yesterday Stewart.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tuition, chat and your company ( Geo’s too).

The weather didn’t diminish my enjoyment in the slightest and catching my first trout was a great experience.


I have had the pleasure of fishing with and the guidance of  Stewart Yates of Assynt Fly Fishing on a number of occasions

He is a passionate fly angler who studies fish behavior and their reaction to flies, as a bonus he is a qualified mountain guide and is quick to share interesting information about Assynt, the geology as well as the fauna and flora
