We met Mick outside Bonnyrigg on a wet and windy day. However as soon as we got into the woods, the wind was calmer, the rain held off and we started walking with Mick's Harris Hawk flying close to us, a magnificent site. We were on the lookout for something to catch. We found a live rabbit hole and after... More

Visited Edinburgh with my family in June 2015. Mick collected my then 9 year old son who loves fishing and myself on time from our hotel and we had a pleasant drive to the fishing lake. We fished from the banks of a reservoir (can't remember the name of that reservoir though) and my son had one of the best... More

Hi Christian. This was one of my best days fishing with guests, everything went smoothly and the fishing was first class. This was wild Brown trout fishing and not easy to catch. I was delighted when I seen your son take a rod and go away by himself and hook up with the biggest Brownie of the day. What a... More

Thank you Taheera, I had a great day with you and your Son Rico and catching that fish was a big bonus, Rico fished hard for it and deserved to land it.

Hi Joe, Thank you for an excellent review, I had a great day fishing with you all and the first two hours were a blur, we soon settled down and began to catch some fish. The cider/beer went down well and by the end it was a great laugh. One of the best Stag partys I have been at and... More

Had a great days fishing with Mick on the Clyde. He sure knows his stuff and taught me lots of different techniques to target the grayling. The real highlight was taking Kass the harris hawk, Max and Chopper the ferrets hunting and the team caught a rabbit in no time flat! Highly recommended!

However we had the best day out, Mick and Ross were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. It was incredible seeing the bird... More

I cannot recommend this highly enough! Mik was a fantastic guide and an even better story teller. If you're traveling to Edinburgh, you must give Mik a call. His animals are incredibly disciplined and experts in their craft. Mik's knowledge of the sport is second to none. I can't wait to go back and try the fly fishing.
