Our audience is at a record level and growing, as we continue to develop the site with new and innovative ways to search and find fishing, our latest being “map search”. As the “Go To” fishing company we are pro-actively searching to improve, help and support our customers; anglers, proprietors, river boards, advertisers and angling clubs.

I am incredibly proud of this achievement for which I have to thank the entire team for their hard work and passion for the sport. A huge thank you to those who help represent us at shows and festivals across the globe, spreading the word that Scotland is a world class fishing destination.”
