 Thank you so much Simon for your dedication and excellent services. 
I hope that we may have an opportunity to fish with you again sometime somewhere.

Tuff Flyfishing; Guided Fly Fishing Scotland

I enjoyed an excellent day fishing with TUFF. Being mid-April, conditions were tough at times; however, with local knowledge and good humour the day proved to be successful.
The brown trout are beautifully​ marked and fight well. The crystal clear water means fly presentation has to be exact but a carefully placed dryfly yeilds fantastic fish.
One happy angler.

​Fishing for Brownies with Simon guiding me showing me his vast experience was superb!
Having helped me with my casting and how to work the river was a great eye opener for me.
Simon’s passion for fishing

and guiding people to be

confident on the river was

Basically my smile says it all!
Thanks very much, I'll be back!

TUFF flyfishing & guiding services evolved from a passion for quality world class brown trout fishing, the stunning landscapes of Scotland and a desire to share these with other flyfishers by providing bespoke memorable fly-fishing trips

                                  Cracking day on the River Don. Few fish moving but the lack of fish was made up for by the excellent company of my fishing companions. Hope to do it again soon.
