About us and FAQ

About Us

The purpose of this website is to provide information that will help you plan your day at a Trout Fishery in Scotland.

All links to external websites are non sponsored (we don’t make a commission or referral fee) and for links to websites where you can purchase something these are sites that I have personally bought from in the past and been impressed with their products and service.

There’s no non Fishery sponsors or ads on the site as this is the only way to provide free and impartial advice.

Got any suggestions on what you would like to see on ScottishTrout.com? Feel free to contact us to tell me your thoughts.


What Trout Fishery Owns this Website?

None. I am just a normal Fly Fisherman like yourself who likes to visit Trout Fisheries. The aim of this website is to provide you with as much information as possible to help you decide what fishery to visit and also tips to help you catch more fish.

Is there anything for sale on ScottishTrout.com?

There’s nothing for sale and no adverts on ScottishTrout.com – You can’t even buy a fly here!

I am a Fishery Owner. How much does it cost to add my fishery to the website?

There is no fee to have your Trout Fishery featured on ScottishTrout.com

I am a Fishery Owner. How do I get my fishery added to the map and a page for my Fishery?

If you are a Fishery Owner then please complete our Fisheries Contact Form

I am a Fishery Owner. I want to thank you by offering a free day at my Fishery.

Whilst I would like to thank you for the kind offer I will politely decline any offers of free fishing. Just ask your accountant if “Thanks” pays the bills or is tax deductable! Seriously though, the best way you can thank me is by spreading the word about this site to your customers. That’s more than enough. Thank you!

Why are you doing this if you don’t make money off of the site?

The short answer is that I had a great Domain Name that was sitting there unused for over a decade and decided to put it to good use. With the state of the economy as it is Fisheries need our support more than ever and this is my way of supporting them.

So Wait – You are doing this for free with absolutely no reward at all?

That’s right – Other than family my 2 main hobbies are Fly Fishing and Computer stuff. I learned how to build a WordPress website and after a lot of research what you see is the fruit of my efforts.

To remain completely impartial this is the only way to do it. It costs me a hosting fee to run the site but that’s just the way life is!

I’m a Fishery Owner. What’s in it for me?

The answer to this is quite simple really. This website drives traffic to your online presence and more customers visiting your Fishery.
The entire site has been built with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mind so all pictures are tagged and all pages are SEO optimised to ensure it gets ranked by Google. As you cannot “buy” the first page in Google without ads (You can buy SEO services) this takes time to work but all pages are designed to drive clicks to the online part of your business and physical footfall to your Fishery.

I am a business and I am based in Scotland. Can you add my link to the Essential Links Page?

Unfortunately not. The Essential Links page only contains links to sites that I have either bought from or personally used before.  Please contact us as I may well have bought materials or flies from you before. If I have I will add a link to your site.

Why are there no Fishery reviews on the site?

There’s 2 answers to this.

With your Google and Facebook buttons on each Trout Fishery page the link will contain reviews from either Google or Facebook users which is publicly available information.

It wouldn’t be fair to any Fishery for me to leave a glowing or scathing review on the site as that could influence the website visitors. At the end of the day my review would only be the opinion of one person and I have no desire to be an influencer in the Fly Fishing niche.

Can I write a guest Blog post about my Fishery?

You sure can!  Although all the information about your fishery should be on your Fisheries Page at ScottishTrout.com – If you want to add anything to your page like videos etc please get in touch

I want to Sponsor the website. Is this possible?

I do not have any plans, either now or in the future, to make money off of the site as that is not why I built it. I have the skills to build and market an online store and I have no plans to do this with this site. I built it to provide helpful advice that everyone who likes visiting Fisheries will benefit from. 

I love the Domain Name. Is it for sale?

That depends on how deep your pockets are! The website is a hobby for me so if you are serious about buying the Domain please get in touch
