Equipment Hire

Assynt Fly fishing has good quality fly fishing equipment available to everyone who has a booking with me as well as being able to offer equipment for hire for just a day or two, or the entire duration of your visit. Should the equipment be hired following a booking with Assynt Fly Fishing, a discount on the hiring costs will be given. If your booking is for more than one full day, equipment hire is free for up to one week!

Each full set of equipment includes; rod, reel, line, leader material, flies and nippers on a retractable lanyard. The set can be a #6 general loch or river set up, a #3 small stream or, if available, a dapping rod, reel, lines and flies. A refundable deposit of £50 is required for each set of fly fishing equipment but I do have a guarantor agreement with some accommodation providers in the area, so please check.


Assynt Fly fishing also holds a couple of float tubes and associated equipment (excluding the waders). This is quite a unique way to explore some of the lochs and rather than spending a significant amount of money on the equipment, only to find that it’s not really your thing, Assynt Fly Fishing can allow you to have a ‘taster’ at a fraction of the cost!
