Kirkwall Fly Fishing Shore Excursions
|If you are visiting Orkney as part of a cruise itinerary, and looking for a fly fishing shore excursion while docked in Kirkwall, we have full day and half day excursions on offer.
Orkney has some of the finest wild brown trout fishing to be found in Europe, and nowhere else in the UK will you find the amount and variety of top quality trout fishing, with such easy access. Trout fishing is part of the local culture, and visiting anglers are warmly welcomed.
All of the lochs on the Orkney Islands are managed by the Orkney Trout Fishing Association (OTFA). Visitor membership is included in our packages entitling you to use their facilities, while also supporting their excellent fishery management & conservation work.
Your guide will take you to fish on one of the 4 main lochs on Mainland Orkney: Harray, Boardhouse, Hundland, or Swannay; his choice dependent on the prevailing conditions. Each loch varies in character, but all have huge populations of hard fighting brown trout in the ½ lb -1½ lbs size range, and occasional bigger fish up to 4 lbs. Providing weather conditions are not extreme, excellent sport can be expected.
If you happen to be fishing on Harray, there will be time for you to stretch your legs and visit the Ring of Brodgar, just a few hundred metres from the boat moorings, while your guide sets up your boat.
The packages below are aimed at groups of 2-4 anglers, but we also cater for single anglers and larger groups - please enquire. All of our excursions are subject to availability, and advance booking is essential. For further information or to book your excursion, please send us a message.
