On what seems like one of the first proper nice days of the year up here in the Pentland Hills you might find your mind drifting to thoughts of a summer evening: casting a dry fly at freely rising trout; line zipping through guides; the creak of carbon as a fine brown trout shakes its head and thumps its tail before rolling over and into the net. Ahh happy days.  Well here at Malleny Angling we've never had our minds off the coming season. We've been hard at work all through the winter, booking stockings and preparing for a great season.

Following 2018's drought and 2019's flood we're planning to relaunch the fishery with a bold stocking plan for 2020. Day Permits can be bought for opening day now, or if you want less complicated, more cost effective fishing, consider one of our Season Permits.

We strongly encourage you to consider buying a permit in advance, either at one of our permit outlets*, or online. As our bailiffs spend more time on the banks there is less availability for them to sell permits in the bothy.  

*New permit outlets! Day Permits available at Orvis and Edinburgh Angling Centre.
