Fly Fishing Tuition with Sue Macniven

Trout & Salmon Spey Casting Tuition
Dumfries & Galloway
South West Scotland.

New Video, Single Spey Casting Faults

Damsel fly fishing is run by me, Sue Macniven, there is only me, there is no "We" If you book to come fishing and learn to cast with Damsel Fly Fishing you will get me, guaranteed. I teach on still waters all year round and rivers throughout the season full time not just weekends.

My aim is to give you clear and concise instruction with a minimum of jargon. Although I am qualified to advanced level for both double and single handed casting I teach many beginners and cover fishing as well as casting so the casts learned can then be applied in real fishing situations.

Within a short drive there are stocked small stillwaters and hidden away lochs for brown trout, rainbow trout, blue trout and tiger trout.

South West Scotland has beautiful scenery and is only 2 hours from Glasgow and 2 1/2 hours from Edinburgh. It is also an easy hop from the North East of England and Cumbria, so you can still fish in Scotland if you have limited time.

I also run Linthorpe B&B too!

Where else can you have a fishing break or holiday in Scotland and stay with a fully qualified instructor?
