Thread: Flyfishing For Pike

  1. #1

    Flyfishing For Pike

    A friend of mine, who is the proprietor of a private fishing syndicate between Edinburgh and Peebles, is offering guided pike fly-fishing on Portmore Loch, which is 110acres in size.

    Boat and all equipment provided. Single, or 2 rods fishing together.

    The pike in the loch average 6-8lbs but several teens, 20's and 30's are caught each year.

    A typical day when they are 'on' should see 2 rods landing several fish each, with many more lost and seen chasing the fly to the boat. Polaroids are essential!!!

    The following links will give an idea of what is on offer.

    Some limited spaces available in the private trout fishing syndicate.

    And no, the trout fishing is not spoiled by the pike!!!

    PM me for more details.

    Yep, just along the road from Gladhouse.

    Don't know if you looked at the video footage but the sport is incredible. As lifelong salmon/seatrout/trout fisher, I can honestly say that nothing compares to pike on the fly for visual excitement!

    I don't know why the trout don't seem effected given the population of pike in the water. They way its fishing just now, and the rise of trout during the warm weather, there appears no shortage. We know that the pike will take other pike and there is an abundance of minnows/sticklebacks as well as perch. Perhaps the different depths these fish feed at has something to do with natural prey. No doubt the odd trout will be taken by the bigger stuff but a 4lb trout in a 20lb pike will keep it going for some time.
