The Scottish Highlands is literally laced with prime fishing rivers. Every season seen a rash of new and returning anglers to these rivers, all of whom will return home hopefully with stories of major catches, fights and the tales of majestic landscapes and mighty river courses - every one a winner!
Forres Tackle Shop stock a broad range of sporting equipment ranging from outdoor clothing and shooting equipment to our comprehensive stocks of quality fishing tackle, salmon and trout flies
The Highlands of Scotland is renowned for its scenery and nowhere more so than the Spey valley -
This is a place of relaxation and for exciting outdoor pursuits, exhilarating adventures in a landscape that has changed little for hundreds of years.
The dark peaty waters of the Spey and most of the highland salmon rivers are moody – sometimes slow, wide and placid, often rushing and aggressive, but always packing a promise of the silver treasure that lurks below – the famous Scottish salmon.
So it’s not surprising that Forres Tackle Shop is located here. Owner Ken Walker, a keen angler himself and former ghillie/Guide manages the busy shop personally and still finds time to tie flies in-between offering advice to visiting anglers and issuing fishing permits for the local rivers. According to Ken, “It’s a busy – sometimes hectic lifestyle – especially throughout the season, but with a passion for the rivers and their harvest, it’s never a chore".
If you come to fish in the Highlands, we look forward to welcoming you at Forres Tackle Shop. Otherwise we are always glad to offer advice and help you make the best decisions on which flies and tackle to use, when and where, so please don’t be slow to drop us a line (pardon the pun!) – we’re here to help.
