Thread: Fantastic stalking and fly fishing sought!

    Fantastic stalking and fly fishing sought!

    Hi there,

    I hope it's okay with everyone that I have joined your forum for a specific purpose, I am not a deer stalker myself but my husband is. Hubby's 40th birthday is coming up in a few months and I would dearly like to buy him some sort of memorable deer stalking and/or salmon fishing experience that will make his birthday a bit special. I confess my knowledge of deer stalking and salmon fishing is a tad limited and so I wondered if any of you might be kind enough to share your ideas with me.

    At the moment I'm looking for somewhere that my husband, myself and our two young children could visit for a week or two's holiday then whilst we are there there would be deer stalking and/salmon fishing outings that I can book up for my husband so that he can go off and do these whilst I look after the children. I'd really love to find something special for him.

    In case it helps, my husband stalks mainly woodland/farm land in Suffolk for muntjac roe and fallow. He hasn't yet stalked for red sika or CWD and I'm pretty sure he would be keen to stalk red or sika in particular. He is a very experienced fly fisher who has some experience of salmon fishing and I know he would love to catch a great big salmon!

    i really appreciate any ideas any of you are willing to share with me. Happy New Year one and all!

    Try some of the estates in north scotland or the scottish Islands,, Mull is a favourite of mine,, lots of Red stalking and Salmon fishing , plus brown trout and rainbow fishing,,,,,,, plus good friendly locals and child friendly hotels and pubs
    good luck on this

    I would agree, Scotland would be the best place, so much Salmon fishing and Red deer stalking available.
    Or The Arundel Arms in Devon see The Arundell Arms Hotel & Wedding Venue in Dartmoor, Devon

    Hi Not sure what time of year you are looking at for your holiday, we could offer you a week or two in our Self-catering lodge overlooking the river Spey and help find salmon fishing anytime from mid Feb to end of September. We could also find roe stalking for most of that time as well. If you want to have salmon fishing and red stags then the closer to the end of September the better as the stags will closer to the rut. It is always a compromise as the later the date the salmon fishing gets poorer but it is easier to find stag stalking.
    If it is just stag stalking you want then the first three weeks of October are the main season for rutting stags.
    have look at our website Welcome to Weiroch Lodge and email through that or pm me if interested.

    Thanks Jimbo
    Depending on time of year i can help with Salmon fishing in the Nith or the Annan or even show hubby the ropes out on the estuary where we catch a few in the haafnet or stake nets , deer species for stalking depend again on when your visit would be , it may even be possible to do boar and goat as well

    If it helps im sure your husband would be interested in finding out about the haafnet nets, its a very ancient form of fishing and not everyone gets to experiance it
    If you read the posts Solwaystalker gets very good recomendations, trout, salmon, red, roe, goats and boar
    You will get a skip full of brownie point from hubby from this
    Plus its southern scotland, but that not to say its not hilly

    GOOD GIRL well done, hes a very lucky Chap, remember to tell him !!

    Let us know what you book

    Try liddlesdale he has plenty of great roe stalking just north of kielder, he also has a cottage that sleeps 7 and to top it off its only a few miles away from England's finest salmon river "the Tyne".
    Also Newcastle is only about a hour away with its shops, museums and art galleries.

    Please PM me your phone number.

    I have my own 8000 acre estate lease in the Scottish highlands with two very nice cottages, one over looking a salmon river, 55 miles north of Inverness. I might be able to find room in October for a Red Stag and Sika Stag for your husband with the bungalow overlooking the salmon river. However the Salmon fishing I do not have, even though one of the premier salmon rivers in north Scotland runs through my lease, I have no rights over it.
