Testimonials

We’re still talking about how awesome our experience was – quality banter, great knowledge, supportive and patient teaching, delicious cupcakes (the cherry jam was a delicious touch), and overall just being a warm and lovely person.

All of us enjoyed the fly fishing experience with you very much. You have also kindled the interest within us to take up fly fishing later, let’s see how many of us will end up doing that. We were amazed by your knowledge of the area, plants, birds, water and the rocks. You gave us a really wonderful afternoon which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you so much for that.

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed our trip and your guidance.  I had never fished on lochs so understanding how to approach this was a real education and very enjoyable.   Our second day was extraordinary – the stream was such a surprise – a truly hidden gem !

A truly great day in stunning surroundings – with beautiful wild brownies caught and released .Many thanks Stewart for a fabulous day, the instruction and sharing your knowledge of the geology and the fauna. That really made my two weeks in Scotland and has given me confidence to tackle some more waters.

Ray, England

Thank you for the 2 days of guiding. Some very useful lessons, new marks, and tactics, and more than anything else has shown me to have faith in my approach and be patient.

Michael, England

Thanks so much for a wonderful  day’s fishing in Assynt.  As you said, the pools got better and better as we walked upstream, ending in the beautiful cauldron at the top. The hot drink and macaroons were a treat as was the use your Orvis rod, and thanks for all the tackle changes you did throughout the way. I’ll need a lot more practice to tie a knot that quickly!  The waterfall all the end was amazing.

One of my best ever days spent fly fishing, enjoying the wilds of Assynt. Stewart is an incredible ambassador for the region – every email was answered with detail and passion – and then on our day in the hills, his energy and love for the region, wildlife and fishing was relentless. He promised me a day to remember – and he delivered, ten-fold. We tracked a small stream through gorges and rock features. I stopped counting fish when I hit 20. We ended the day with a few hours in a boat on a loch, in the shadow of Suilven mountain. I’ll definitely be back and look forward to my next adventure with Stewart and Geo.

Thanks you for a great time this morning – so enjoyed it and will be telling the family all about it and we hope to come back for another  coaching session with you next year.

Gillian, England

Now i am back home and i remember the great times we had up in the Highlands. Beautiful views, nice Walks, information about the land, fauna and flora, the perfect cafe in the morning and afternoon, and not to forget the beautiful fishing in river and lakes.  I can give the advice to everybody that a  guiding with you in the Assynt Area is absolutely a must. You know the areas and help us with everything. The fish spotting with you was very exciting and useful, then without that we could not catch the very big an beautiful trout.  I hope i can come again to Assynt and have some beautiful fishing with you again.

We had an absolutely wonderful time fishing a gorgeous stream for “wee” brown trout in what we agree is the most beautiful place we’ve ever fished.  Stewart was a great guide; he had all the equipment and know-how we needed, as well as some great local history and stories, and even delicious rhubarb biscuits and tea!  We wholeheartedly recommend Assynt Fly Fishing for anyone seeking a delightful fly fishing experience while in the area.
