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.Read more ›
For this price- why wouldn't you buy it?
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.
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.
I would check the information before setting out to avoid disappointment
But overall a good book and very useful
is a tour de force by a real pair of experts.
