There was a time when this book in its previous incarnations was looked on (in print form) as the go-to work when details re lochs and availability of fishing them were needed. I've had hardback copies for about 20 years and over time it became more and more out of date as fisheries changed hands, were closed down or new ones opened up. Also, ticket sales outlets became more and more outdated.

So I decided as soon as I saw that an updated version was hot on the shelves to get it but in the Kindle version, where most of my new book purchases reside these days.

I might have saved my money. It still lists places that have been closed for years and that tickets can be bought from shops that have been closed for years.

For example, Sandyknowes at Bridge of Earn has been well and truly shut and drained for I'd guess for at least five years but possibly a few more than that. Castlehill fishery is listed as per Holl reservoir, but that's not right, it's been a fishery on its own right for several years and is now arguably more of a pike loch than anything else. Tickets can't be bought for ANY water from the "Hobby and Model Shop" in Dunfermline as it's been history for many years now. Gartmorn Dam is closed for this year at least. Newton Farm Fishery has been opened and closed several times in recent years but each time the extreme weed growth defeats new operators. It's not operational and hasn't been for at least two years. But in this book it's apparently alive and well... Crook of Devon fishery has been dead and gone for many years now, yet it's still listed in this new updated version.

Other, smaller details are also noted as being inaccurate.

Like most Scottish anglers I am indebted to Bruce for his commitment to keeping this massive body of work going. Unlike a previous reviewer, I have yet to find one entry which has proved to be anything less than 100% accurate although, with a work of this size there are bound to be some errors.
For this price- why wouldn't you buy it?

If you're after a didactic account of every stretch of water in Scotland you can cast into, then this is great.

But in terms of finding places to fish when you're new to Scotland, you're better using the internet and local website. This book doesn't provide nearly enough referencing to allow you to filter out what you don't want or can't access (e.g. I wanted wild fish in a river/stream within 1hrs drive of Edinburgh... can't do that easily)

It may be some use to experienced local fishermen looking for new grounds, but I suspect a local watering hole would be more useful.

I have back issues of this book and have found them useful, this is suppose to be 2013/2014 edition with updates, it is not. It is a reprint of the previous edition with a forward by Paul young and much of the contact details are years out of date.

Have a previous version of this, though apparently it was the 3rd edition, and this version after a bit more added at the front states to be the 30th anniversary AND the 3rd edition too.
Searching Stirling, I see the same list of places to get the permits, and Crockarts is still there, despite it not being there in town the last time I looked [a year or so ago]
Still a handy book when you get it cheap enough, but yes, take the info with a pinch of salt, and expect to hunt around a little to find the permit issuer for the rivers.
Good guide as a general list, but sadly not been updated, just added a little to, hence the 2 stars.
Sent it back for a refund the same day I'd bought it for the Kindle after checking between the other version I have and the "current" one...

Disappointed and would ONLY recommend for the list of rivers and lochs so you have an idea of what there is in the areas you're looking at, and for that reason not just 1 star.

It was interesting, but some of the information was very much out of date, making it rather unreliable in some areas.
I would check the information before setting out to avoid disappointment

But overall a good book and very useful

This is the most informative guide to freshwater angling in Scotland. No-one who is contemplating a fishing holiday in any part of Scotland should fail to read the book and then follow up the advice given about tackle, access and how to obtain permission to fish. The book, like its predecessors,
is a tour de force by a real pair of experts.

A handy reference guide but certainly not updated correctly,eg.the Crook of Devon fish farm closed about 10 years ago.Also, flies and lures could be updated too. Scotland has some very good coarse fishing. Just a passing mention of the odd venue. This edition is no update,just a rehashed version of the first one I bought in1989.
