Are you seeking the ultimate experience in fishing breaks? There’s plenty of fishing in Fife to enjoy that will suit everyone’s taste, from reservoirs to lochs, rivers and sea. And of course when you stay with us here at Elderburn Luxury Lodges, you can be sure that your ideal fishing spot is only a short distance away.
Perhaps the closest place is the St Andrews Sea Fishing Mark. The rocks run the length of the town and can most easily be accessed from the sea life center. The rocks are hugely popular with winter cod anglers, but also produce excellent summer sport for flounder, plaice and bass. Seasons are typically June to September, and October to March.
The River Eden flows east through Cupar, which is just west of St Andrews. This 20-mile stretch benefits from increasing numbers of salmon and sea trout, and is best throughout September and October. There is a 15-mile section of the river that is double bank and also controlled by the Eden Angling Association. Please note that permits are required for this stretch of the River Eden, and can be purchased from a number of local outlets (£10-15 per day, or £50 per adult season permit. Ask us for more information. It is beautifully picturesque here and very popular with visitors on fishing breaks.
There are several high-quality fisheries around including 3 waters in Fife Regional Park: Holl Reservoir, Harperleas Reservoir, and the smaller Drumain Reservoir. All of these offer great trout fishing from both bank and boat. It’s worth noting that you can only fly fish for rainbow and brown trout at Holl, and at Harperleas the same is true for brown trout. If you are looking to fish for rainbow trout at Drumain you can use any method from the bank.
